|Our biochemical needs
Our genetic code, physiology, blood group, hereditary history and so on render us quite unique. That is why, "one man's food may be another man's poison." There is more truth in this proverb, than usually realized. What this means is that your biochemical needs are not the same as anybody else's. But you are not only a neutral biochemical presence existing in a vacuum. You live in a specific environment, you work in a certain milieu, you are surrounded by family and companion groups, and you interact with all of them. These interactions alone would have been enough to make you unique, even if you were not so in a biochemical sense. The price of uniqueness
But this also means that your nutrition needs are not the same as anybody else's. So for example, you may have decided that you want to be a vegetarian, and provided you are blood type A and know what you are doing, that may be fine. But if your are blood type O, this kind of one-sidedness may become harmful in the long run. Or to take another example, if your ancestral origin is Asiatic, African, or Southern European, following a North American/North European diet high in dairy products, may become extremely uncomfortable and finally harmful for you.
The reason for this is that people from the earlier areas have very high rates of lactose intolerance. These simple examples should be enough to demonstrate that what may distinguish you as an individual, may be also what demands special attention if you are to get the most out of nutrition. Especially if you are to use correct nutrition for disease prevention.
