eta: looks like nuts and seeds. But I didn't look for how common the variants are for those genes. Some variants hit 25-40%. My diabetes IRS1 (insulin receptor substrate #1) 'bad'gene is in 40 %. My Benedryl "zonks me" gene is in 15%, and affects foods too. . Kind of blows the RDA charts out of the water. It's called Nutrigenomics, or Precision Medicine. [/eta]
eta II, I can feel the difference when I've been eating meat, probably subconscious knowledge. So, no, not everybody has the proper Vegan Gene. And I think some of the supplement doses are decided by calories out, not calories in. Waeight stable at 1800 calories, no supplement needed. Losing weight at 5-10 lbs/week because you are burning 8,000/day on 2,500 calories, supplements needed. Like the weight lifetrs/body builders.
