Cancer is a complicated and serious illness and to think that by reading a book you may magically be cured is foolish. No one should be their own doctor. And when working with a IjHI certified doctor, you will be able to take responsibility for your own health by finding out how to work with your own blood type heritage with this book. Oh and by the way who said being in good health as we get older was easy? It's not easy and neither is giving up the 'avoid' foods we love yet if avoiding these 'avoid' foods this book recommends helps us beat CANCER isn't it worth it? Try it under the care of a IjHI certified doctor for two months. What do you have to lose? Most cancer MD's have no idea how you got cancer in the first place nor do they have anything resembling a cure.
According to D'Adamo some blood groups are more prone to cancer than others namely blood groups A and AB. According to Steve Henry and Bo Samuelsson both PhD scientists, and contributing authors of the book, Human Blood Cells: Consequences of Genetic Polymorphisms and Variations and experts in the ABO polymorphism have quoted....."Malignancy appears to associate more frequently with group A than group O subjects. Although there appears to be less associations with blood groups B and AB , in many instances, this is due to insufficient numbers obtainable for statistical analysis. It should be noted that with very few exceptions, for every report showing an association, there is another reporting either no association or a different association.Read more ›
In this slimmer volume, D'Adamo again looks at all four blood types and recommends food, drink and vitamins to help keep you cancer-free. On solely a practical level what this means is that only one fourth of the book will be read by you---why D'Adamo doesn't simply offer 4 books at a fourth of the price, I'll never know. The fourth of the book that you will read pretty much duplicates what is written in 'Eat Right for Your Type','Live Right for Your Type' and 'The Eat Right for your Type Encyclopedia'. In this book, D'Adamo adds 2 new food categories to the triumvate of BENEFICIAL, NEUTRAL and AVOID categories found in the older editions. One of the new food categories--Super Beneficial further delineates the already restrictive ground he has already covered at length in his earlier books. A few new vegetables and spices are added in the newer categories, but otherwise the directives found in his earlier work still define the underlying principles in this one.
So the really bottom line on this one is whether or not you really need to purchase a $20 book to further affirm D'Adamo's thinking on food and supplements. I think not. Whether or not you accept the idea that observing blood type and D'Adamo's corresponding food do's and don't's is the key to a longer and healthier life will definitely sway you in either making or not making this purchase.Read more ›
