    Why people with O blood type should eliminate milk from the diet?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Anna,

    I do NOT recommend cow's milk for ANY of my patients, no matter what blood type. Cow's milk, does not have the correct ratio of minerals for optimal human function. It is for rapid growth of calves.

    Besides that, one molecule of cow's milk is one hundred times larger than a molecule of human milk. Combine this fact with the process of pasteurization (total destruction of all naturally occurring enzymes) and you end up with a food that is extremely difficult for humans to properly digest and assimilate.

    IF you like the taste of goat's milk (one molecule of goat's milk is the same size as a molecule of human milk), you will find that it digests and assimilates much more easily and efficiently than cow's milk. Other acceptable alternatives to bovine milk include rice milk, almond milk, etc. We do NOT recommend soy milk due to compelling negative research that has surfaced over the last few years.

    Can you give me a link to a site that explains the potential problem with soy milk? Just curious as always! Just ask Sue!

    Hello Steve,

    There is a rapidly growing body of evidence concerning the hazards of soy, especially unfermented soy products. For years we have been advising our patients to avoid soy, except for small amounts of fermented soy products such as tempeh, miso, tamari, etc. as condiments.

    A good place to begin gathering information about soy on the internet is .

    Hi Judy,

    I have not recommended soy products for my patients for quite a few years now. Fermented soy products such as tempeh, miso, and tamari are OK in small amounts such as for condiments, etc. Tofu is not a fermented soy product.

    Please take into consideration the age and size of the kids. Soy can have a significant estrogenic effect, especially on children.
