Questions of A More Technical Nature

More Book Differences


I am Type O, & purhcased both the supplement list & Eat Right 4 Your Type BUT I am finding differences in the food lists! Ex: list for vegetables says cabbage & sauerkraut are neutral, and avoid cukes; book says cukes are neutral, avoid cabbage, and doesn't list sauerkraut! Same problem with green peppers! Also many other contradictions! What am I to believe???


It is because you have entered the Twilight Zone.

Well, no. In reality different books are in different stages of upgrade or complexity. For example:

First book (Eat Right 4 Your Type) was a basic synthesis of the concept. It had to make some judgements regarding homogenizing information if it was secretor status specific. If a food was deemed a more serious avoid for a non secretor than it might be as a neutral or beneficial for a secretor, then the non-secretor value was used.

2. Second Book (Live Right 4 Your Type) had secretor status differences.

and a very small number of food value changes, reflecting the advances in basic scientific knowledge.

2. The 'little books' (Food and Beverage Guides) Are a mass market book, very simplified, with largely just secretor guidelines and with a few of the altered values included.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
