The concept of body type is central to Ayurveda, and my experience with that tradition gives me a lot of confidence as to the value of diets for specific body types. Dr. D'Adamo has written a bestseller, Eat Right for Your Type. Naturally, this is a book that would interest me. In fact, I'm fairly confident that the idea of a nutrition program for each body type is scientifically sound and it is something I'd like to continue learning about.
The first time I became really familiar with Dr. Adamo was while doing some research on ghee - one of his FAQS popped up on Google. I respect that Dr. D'Adamo has his facts right about ghee -- most other doctors do not, and they don't even have a mind open enough to look at the current research or historical usage.
I would like to learn more about Dr. D'Adamo's nutrition program. However, my first forays into his work (beyond his ghee FAQ) were not confidence inspiring. In my opinion, blood type alone is not sufficient for determining nutritional requirements.
This is an educational film. It is worth seeing. It won't make you happy, but it will make you informed. No one can afford to be uninformed on this topic. As you will understand when you watch the film, it doesn't matter where you live or how far away you are from civilization, you need to be informed about the issues discussed in The Future of Food. Please watch the DVD.
Let me try to put the importance of this film into perspective. I probably can't do it justice, but I'll try.
