The book Death by Food Pyramid introduced me to the concept of genetic clusters of enzymes that dictate our Optimum Diet; which would then change according to the individualís genetic heritage.

So this quest for THE ONE is pointless and damaging. My background is Far Northern European and Northern North American Indigenous people. Yet health authorities in the US want me to eat like someone who has a heritage of Equatorial peoples: who have higher tolerance for carbohydrates and are far better able to extract needed proteins from plant foods than I can.
