Your blood type
With respect to the ABO blood types, it is very difficult to state that one type is more advantageous than another. Each blood type has its own strengths and characteristic weaknesses. However, this does not appear to be the case with the Secretor gene. As a generality, being a Non-secretor based on all of the available information does actually appear to be a potential health disadvantage. At a very basic level, being able to secrete blood type into your saliva, mucus, etc. An additional advantage of being a Secretor might be a generalized tendency to promote a stabilized, blood-type friendly intestinal bacterial ecosystem. Many of the friendly probiotic bacteria in your digestive system actually use your blood type as one of their preferential foods.
This bond is fundamentally based on our blood type and the genetic information that has resulted in specific characteristics passed down through generations. Blood types are either secretors or non-secretors this refers to the ability to secrete blood type antigens into tissues and fluids or not and exist in every grouping i. A secretor places their blood type into their bodily tissues and fluids such as saliva. A non-secretor places none or very little of their blood type into these areas of the body. Non-secretors lack the FUT2 secretor gene, which can be determined through blood analysis.
These sugars are called antigens. There are other parts of our body that can make these antigens too! When red blood cells make antigens, they also need to read a gene called FUT1. This antigen attaches to the surface of the red blood cells. But when other cells make antigens, they read a different gene called FUT2. So what are these other cells that read FUT2?
The Blood Type Diet claims to help you lose weight and achieve good health by eating foods that are right for your blood type. Your diet plan is further individualized based on whether you are a secretor or a non-secretor. Non-secretors with blood type O are advised to eat certain foods and avoid others. The primary purpose of the Blood Type Diet, created by Peter D'Adamo, is to help you choose nutritious foods according to the type of blood you have. D'Adamo suggests that individuals with type O blood consume a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet and limit dairy foods.
