The one, and very important, thing in common between eating shrimp and rabbit is that both fall in the category of "unclean" or "non-wholesome" animals for human consumption according to the Bible's Leviticus chapter 11 and Deuteronomy chapter 14.  Among marine animals, shrimp, they must have fins AND scale. Shrimp, having a large scale but no fins puts it in the category of unfit for human consumption.  Among ground animals they must chew the cud AND have split hoofs.  Rabbits chew the cud but have not split hoof which puts it also in the category of animals unfit for human consumption.  In the case of the rabbit ,or hare, it is mentioned, by name, in both chapters cited as "unclean" or unwholesome as food for humans.  Also in this category is pork, screwel, shark, lobster, clam and many other commonly eaten, expensive foods that are killing us or making us ill.

Of course, the ideal diet is to return to our Manufactorer's original diet of grains, fruits, cereals, legumes, nuts, etc. : a vegetarian diet.  But if we crave meat let's eat those that God approved.  And, by the way, even the clean meats should be thoroughly drained of their blood, Leviticus 17:14.  Good health to you and your friend.

Expertise

Any in the field I believe. Only experience of questions that get asked will tell.

Experience

I am a retired medical academic from the UK. I have done major research on Food Allergy and have been a government adviser in the area. 30 years experience running an allergy clinic. And undergraduate and post-graduate teaching.

Organizations
Well, apart from the FRCP, I'm no longer active in the area. I'm too busy writing books. And I no longer have the cash to go to international meetings. But was active in many.

Publications
Will 120 scientific papers help? Chapters in books. Patient advisory materials. Magazine articles. TV appearances. Live and recorded. National and international invited lectures, etc. It was my job for 40 years. Do you think I count!

Education/Credentials
MD, PhD, Postgraduate Diplomas etc. Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. etc. But I don't want that put out on the net! Just to let you know!

Awards and Honors
irrelevant.

Past/Present Clients
Too many to count, patients of course and a large number of all sorts of corporate consultancies and considerable work as an expert witness in the Courts. I'm volunteering because your Greek expert has been so helpful, I thought I'd offer something back.
