Some time ago, and before the ketogenic diet, we talked on the forum about the "blood type diet", and how some blood types may tolerate dairy better than others. For example blood type B, that according the blood type diet is called "nomadic". And it is indeed possible, but considering what Laura wrote above, it is no more than an indication that a certain percentage of human population has a genetic mutation due to a lifestyle or other influences. It also doesn't mean that there are no other possibly harmful repercussions as a result.Laura said:Those people who can TOLERATE dairy do so by virtue of a genetic mutation. 75% of the population of the planet can't really digest casein. Think about it: a mutation.Keyhole said:Similar for dairy, and I find it really hard to get my head around the whole dairy issue. It is so massively packed full of nutrients, the amino acid profile of milk/cheese is pretty amazing, and people (especially Europeans) have been eating dairy for such a long time. I suspect that if the gut is healthy, a portion of people can thrive on dairy foods... and I will be honest - I hope I am one of those people!! :P
Also, in another thread a forum member shared the following sentence from one of Carl Jung's talks:
And I think that it applies to the diet too. That we should always strive to act along the lines of nature and respect its unwritten laws. Which certainly doesn't exclude eating meat, but does exclude digesting milk that is intended for babies of other species. At least that's how it seems to me.-When you think in a certain way, you may feel better, when you think along the lines of nature, then you think properly.
