Blood Type Linked to Overall Health?

From eNewsletter 11/15/2021

DID YOU KNOW that recent climate discussion has been woefully bereft of two simple things we can do dietarily? Eliminating animal protein is not one of them. According to a new study from Current Nutrition Reports, "discretionary" foods that include sugar-sweetened drinks, alcohol, and candy/desserts account for between 27-33 percent of all food-related greenhouse gas emissions. Climate aside, think about the myriad ways we could help ourselves and others by minimizing or eliminating the aforementioned? Another study from Environmental Science & Technology found that simply buying more fresh foods and less processed/bulk foods could produce a 29 percent reduction in personal carbon emissions. Great for us. Great for the planet!

Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines will minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is not going away. Moreover, SARS-CoV-2 is not the only virus we fight. There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. We highly recommend continuing your immune support. See our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.

Blood Type Matters

Steve and Bonnie: Well, it only took a few decades, but researchers are finally understanding the importance of blood type when it comes our health. Blood type has been summarily dismissed, even though certain health professionals have seen a connection when it comes to diet and overall health. Aside from the fact that researchers recently discovered that certain blood types were more protective from COVID-19, a new study in eLife examined 5.1 million unique persons followed over 70 million person-years. Looking for associations between blood types and risk in 1217 distinct disease categories, they found 49 significant distinct illnesses. For example, the study shows that individuals with type A blood had an increased risk of developing clots such as deep vein thrombosis, and type O individuals had an overall increased risk of developing a bleeding condition. Those with type A or type B have a greater risk of developing heart disease. Women with type O and/or RhD antigen (positive blood type) were more susceptible to suffer high blood pressure during pregnancy. Additionally, there was an association between blood types O and the formation of kidney stones, while those with type B blood were found to have decreased incidence. According to the findings, individuals with type AB blood were not associated with any of the specific diseases linked to the other types. We cannot change our blood types, so what can we do preventively? There are select foods that should be avoided, or at the least minimized, in perpetuity due to incompatibility with blood type. For example, corn for blood type B's is not recommended.
