I'm not saying that everyone should function like robots and eat exactly what the diet says, but being a little more aware of how food makes you feel can help out so much in the long run. Who doesn't want to have more energy?"
Blood type and secretor status can influence the breast milk of nursing mom's.
Mom's secretor status has a lot of influence on the microbiome of her breast-fed child. The principal sugars in human breast milk are rich in the glycan fucose, but milk from non-secretor moms is much lower in its fucose content. Bifidobacterium longum, a critical early colonizer of the gastrointestinal tract of infants, loves fucose, which is why it grows so readily in breast-fed infants of ABO secretor moms. Non-secretor moms who breast feed infants might benefit using a dietary fucose source as a prebiotic for the infant, or consider consuming sea vegetables, such as seaweeds. Since neuronal attachments are largely mediated through fucose-specific lectin ligands, developmental benefits may also result.
