The blood type diet.

This is from a nutritional researcher whose opinion and conclusions I value above any other I have read:

Lessons from Jon Barron
The Blood Type Diet

In this week’s excerpt from Lessons from the Miracle Doctors, Jon Barron examines the pros and cons of the Blood Type diet.

“Right now, the Blood Type diet and its variations are all the rage. They are based on an entirely different approach to determining the optimum diet than I have outlined. The basic idea behind these diets is that blood types evolved from the lifestyles and diets of different groups of humans over the millennia; therefore, you need to eat the diet natural to the group from which you are descended. The cornerstone of the diet is the premise that certain proteins/glycoproteins in food, called lectins, ape the glycoproteins on red blood cells, thus triggering immune reactions from the matching blood type. Is the premise valid?

Probably not so much. Yes, there is no question that different foods definitely have high allergy potential for many people, but the problem appears to be less with the lectins than with the ability of the digestive tract to fully break down the proteins in food. This is evidenced by the fact that the simple addition of supplemental digestive enzymes with meals and proteolytic enzymes between meals can often help reduce food allergies dramatically. In fact, there is little evidence that lectins, other than a handful of exceptions such as ricin (which will affect anyone of any blood type), present a problem for the human body of any blood type.

But that aside, doesn’t the Blood Type diet work for some people? Absolutely! Simple math works in its favor. If you tell an O, an A, or an AB not to eat dairy because they don’t have the right blood type, then you’ve just told the vast majority of people in the world not to eat dairy. Considering all of the problems associated with commercial dairy we’ve already discussed, a lot of people are going to feel significantly better on the diet, regardless of blood type. (Chalk that up in the win column for the diet.)

On the other hand, you’ve also just told a lot of Asians (they have the highest percentage of blood type B in the world) that they’ll thrive on dairy. Probably not such a good thing since about 90 percent of all Asians suffer from lactose intolerance. (And that would need to be chalked up in the loss column.) Bottom line: if the diet works for you, then use it, but understand that your good results are probably based more on casino odds than science.”

Monsanto’s Losses Widen as Seed Sales Decline

Agricultural business giant Monsanto Co. reported worse-than-expected losses for its fiscal fourth quarter on Wednesday, due to lower sales of its genetically engineered seeds.

Absolutely LOVING this result!
Couldn’t happen to a more evil company!
“Worse than bankers or munitions manufacturers?” you ask.
“Too bloody right!” I reply.
They only kill you this lifetime.
Monsanto’s destruction will be felt for generations for if mere fast food can alter your DNA so it damages your children and their children, what will GMOs be found to do?
Nothing less me fears.
So, my good friends, keep spreading the word.
Starve the beast of its financial energy.
Make evil unprofitable!

Wow! I picked 8 and was blown away with how accurate was the description. Then I looked at my second choice, number 5, and was surprised how well that aligned. Then I looked at the rest, some of which fitted better than others. As received...

World Bank Whistleblower Karen Hudes Reveals How The Global Elite Rule The World


Karen Hudes is a graduate of Yale Law School and she worked in the legal department of the World Bank for more than 20 years. In fact, when she was fired for blowing the whistle on corruption inside the World Bank, she held the position of Senior Counsel. She was in a unique position to see exactly how the global elite rule the world, and the information that she is now revealing to the public is absolutely stunning.

According to Hudes, the elite use a very tight core of financial institutions and mega-corporations to dominate the planet. The goal is control. They want all of us enslaved to debt, they want all of our governments enslaved to debt, and they want all of our politicians addicted to the huge financial contributions that they funnel into their campaigns. Since the elite also own all of the big media companies, the mainstream media never lets us in on the secret that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that our system works.

The Most Important Image Captured By Hubble

In 1996, scientists took a huge risk when they pointed the Hubble telescope to an inky field that they believed to be void of stars and planets. As images from Hubble are in constant demand, the worry was that devoting so much time to a black space would prove futile. Once the photons finally registered, though, that leap of faith proved fruitful: light from over three thousand galaxies illuminated the image. A few years and missions later, Hubble’s glimpse into what is known as the deep field has revealed that we are just one tiny part of a vast system comprising 100 billion galaxies.

Will Google Hummingbird Affect Your SEO?

Lately it seems like Google has improved its ability to provide direct answers to your search questions. These improvements are part of Google’s new search algorithm called “Hummingbird,” which is the biggest update to their search engine since the “caffeine Update” in 2009. To sum it up, Hummingbird helps Google provide more relevant knowledge to searchers - meaning the update has enabled Google to better understand the content it indexes.
