Questions About The Diets

Ground Flaxseed


Loved your book. I'm a type O. I've read recently that whole fresh flaxseed (ground) is excellent for people in that it is a great source of fiber and cancer-fighting lignans. In your book, you mention that linseed (flaxseed) oil is highly beneficial for type O's. Does the same apply to the whole flaxseed as well?


Yes, whole flax seeds are beneficial for blood type O individuals (note: great for other blood types as well). Flaxseed lignans can help bind to Epidermal Growth Factor receptors (markers on cells that enhance growth, and are found more numerously on certain types of cancer cells) and block the actions of the estrogen promoting enzyme aromatase.

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.
