Naturopathic physician and researcher D'Amamo has identified six "GenoTypes": the Hunter, the Gatherer, the Teacher, the Explorer, the Warrior, and the Nomad. "Yes, your GenoType is the product of the genes you inherited from your family, but it's also the result of your prenatal experience." In analyses that sound a bit like horoscopes ("Explorers who maintain a detoxifying diet that also nourishes the blood and bone marrow will have few health problems and usually will have very little trouble attaining a healthy weight"), the author gives food do's and don'ts for each GenoType. If there's anything scientifically sound about any of this, we haven't seen the signs.
