Blood type O & Fish Oil negative connection

** Originally posted by Athaxto **

Hey folks,

I'm more of a reader of these boards then a poster, but I wanted to share something I found. I was reading up on the blood type discussion, and while I dont know mine (shame on me), I am fairly sure I am type O as well.

I think many of us have heard of eating fish-rich diets or taking omega-3 supplements. Well, this article I found might enlighten those type-O folks to think twice about ingesting cod liver oil or other kinds of fish oil.

It also ties in the leaky gut theory a bit if you read into it as it mentions, "increased gastrointestinal tract permeability and increased manifestations of delayed patterns of food allergy," as reasons to avoid fish oils if you're a "type O non-secretor."

I hope this helps someone.

Another example of natural does not always equal safe.

Hey! poison ivy is natural! so is fungi death cap an all natural mushroom.....and then there is the Hemlock. all natural!

quote" CLO should be avoided by blood group O non-secretors,

and is generally neutral for healthy O secretors. The reason for

this difference is that Dr. D'Adamo has observed depressed saliva

levels of sIgA (secretory Immunoglobulin A) in O non-secretors

on CLO supplements." unquote.

it seems you must get tested to see if you are a non-secretor...if you are just a regular ol' secretor....... then all is well!

All natural, but still I'm safe.................Sally
