If you are a patient of mine, you may have noticed I ask about your blood type on the intake form. Why do I do that?
In the late 1990’s I had the privilege of working closely with Dr. Peter D’Adamo, the author and inventor of the Blood Type Diet.
Initially, I thought the whole idea was bogus, particularly because at the time I was a staunched vegan and the book suggests people with blood type O benefit from meat consumption.
While the Blood Type Diet is imperfect (as all diets are) I did saw a number of people getting better from being on this eating regimen.
Later on, as I became focused on prostate disorders I read research that some conditions are more associated with people of certain blood types than others.
For example, I just read this
paper associating prostate cancer mortality to men with blood type A, B and AB but not with the O type.
Blood Type 101: There are four blood types: O, A, B and AB. Blood type O is most common and type AB is least common. To learn more about blood type hit this
- The cited research above does not mean a person with O blood type can’t get prostate cancer. It means they are less likely to die from it.
- The cited research supports association between prostate cancer and blood type, not causation.
- Regardless of blood type, a man should be vigilant and practice behaviors and lifestyle that reduces your risk of prostate cancer.
- Blood type A, B and AB should be extra careful, screen more and eat an anti-cancer diet discussed in Thrive, Don’t Only Survive.
Lastly, two dietary nutritional supplement that complement good eating and exercise is ImmunoPCTN
. You likely know the story behind these nutritional supplements I developed.
Ok, I’ll tell you anyway! After years of research and reading hundreds of scientific papers on optimal nutrition for prostate cancer, ImmunoPCTN
are the results.
Many of my patients are reporting a lowering in PSA, often for the first time in a long time, plus no colds and flu during the winter season. That makes sense since, among many things, the two formulas strengthens the immune system.
That’s it for today. I am coming back soon with more goodies.
Make it a great day,
