Are you born a vegetarian or do you become one?
Lately there is much talk about nutrition and vegetarian or vegan food. Many restaurants “convert” or offer vegan options. Although there are still many who eat a “vegetable” sandwich with tuna or chicken.
The reasons? Some for health reasons, others for ethical reasons, others for improving or saving the planet …
There are many reasons and theories, but Dr. Peter D’Adamo believes that vegetarians are born vegetarians. He explains his theory in his book “Eat right 4 your type”. According to him, the appearance of our CroMagnon ancestors, about 40,000 years ago, pushed humans to the top of the food chain because they began to hunt in organized groups with weapons. Humans had the type O (experts say that blood type O had already “existed” for 1 or 2 million years) that extended from Africa to Asia and Europe and is currently the predominant type of blood. Between 25,000 and 15,000 BC it is assumed that blood group A appeared in Asia or the Middle East in response to new environmental conditions, agriculture and domestication of animals. This mutation allowed them to ingest and tolerate the change of diet with more grains and vegetables. Humans also developed new planning skills in a cooperative society. Apparently group A are also more resistant to plague, cholera and smallpox. In the human expansion towards the north of Asia between the years 15,000 and 10,000 a.C. Type B appeared in the mountainous Himalayan region, which later spread across to Eurasian steppes and plains with the Caucasus and Mongol tribes. And then, the youngest of the types, with only about 10 or 12 centuries is the AB type.
What I understand is that those with type O would do well with a paleoitic diet; Type A with a vegetarian or vegan diet; and Type B a wider Flexiterian with dairy products but without wheat, corn, lentils, peanut, buckwheat. For more information you can visit the links below.
Now I understand why I hated burgers I ate when I was young, brain donuts, meatballs or kidneys, or stew. All prepared with much love from my mother, but I could not swallow meat. I would chew and chew until it was cold and hard. The only thing my mother let me not eat was lamb. I thought it was because during the holidays we went to Murillo de Gallego and the family of the house had lambs and goats. Because I played with them. But no, according to Dr. D’Adamo, the lamb is not good for blood type A.
Even in Japan, the type of blood is so important that companies look for their employees, or people look for partners or friends depending on the type of blood. The precursor was Masahiko Nomi, with her book entitled “What Blood Types Reveal on Compatibility”.
I also recommend several summer readings of Esther Vivas about the real price paid by the planet for the “processing” of meat for human consumption; And the Vegan Nutrition website.
The other day I read that if humans killed each other at the rate we kill animals (farmed and wild), in 17 days we would all be dead. It seems very extreme.
