    Post Eat Right For Your Blood Type

    http://www.webefit.com/Diets/Diet_Blood_Type.html

    Dr. D'Adamo proposes that your blood type, O, A, B or AB, is the key to your body's chemistry. Your blood type determines how you absorb nutrients, what illnesses you are susceptible to and how you will react to specific foods. He has taken this theory and built diets specific to each blood type. By following these diets Dr. D'Adamo even suggests you can avoid certain illnesses your blood type is susceptible to.
    Suggested Foods

    It all depends on your blood type.

    Type O's are the "hunter-gatherers." Type O's can eat meat (high protein and low carbohydrates) but should not eat wheat or most grains.

    Type A's are the "agrarians." Type A's should be vegetarians (high carbohydrates and low fat).

    Type B's are "balanced." Type B's have the most varied diet and it's the only one that does well with dairy products.

    Type AB's are "modern." Type AB is vegetarian, but fish and some dairy are allowed.

    Exercise is also encouraged, but the type of exercise Dr. D'Adamo believes would be most beneficial is also determined by blood type.
    How it Works

    According to Dr. D'Adamo it works like this. Each blood type contains specific chemical markers called antigens that tell the immune system what is good and bad. Antigens that enter your body that are unlike your blood type antigen are seen as bad, causing your immune system to create an antibody to that antigen. When the antibody attacks the bad antigens it's a process called agglutination. These agglutinated antigens attract one another and as they group together the immune system hunts down and destroys them.

    Still with me? Proteins in your food (called lectins) that are not compatible with your blood type antigens agglutinate your red blood cells. These agglutinated cells can then go on to mess up body organs, digestion and even hormonal balance.

    Pros and Cons

    The only good thing about this diet is you don't have to worry about counting calories or fat grams. Eat as much as you'd like of the foods permitted for your blood type.

    The bad thing? This diet does not have one published study proving it works. Only pages of references that Dr. D'Adamo say back up his belief.

    Families or households that have mixed blood types may have great difficulty in coordinating meals.

    Following this diet could be harmful. Type O's may load up on meat (and it's associated fats) and not get enough of other crucial foods. Type B's who are lactose intolerant may have significant difficulties on a diet that says they should eat plenty of dairy.

    Dr. D'Adamo's claims to help prevent certain diseases is also troubling since there are no medical studies to back this claim up.
    The Bottom Line

    This diet is poor science, potentially dangerous and until proper studies are done we cannot recommend Eating 4 Your Blood Type.

    As with any diet what this book suggests should NEVER be attempted without the supervision of a Medical Doctor or licensed Nutritionist.

    Both my parents are A, so I guess I'm A too.

    I've read his researches a year ago, it's weird that there is still no definitive say about the value of this, or is there?

    I wonder how do bloodtypes compare to European, Asian and African haplogroups.

    Blood type B is highest in Asia.Overall in the world, B is the rarest ABO blood allele.:



    O is highest among aboriginal populations,especially in South America and in Western Europe (especially in populations with Celtic ancestors):


    A is highest among Australian aboriginies, Lapps and Blackfoot Indians of Montana:

    Vojvoda, thanks so much for the article and the links. I remember asking endless questions about this to you a couple of days ago (that means my efforts paid well)

    I'm a B+, my father is an O+ and my mother AB-. It was a troubling situation, if my parents were to have another child it might have been a problem; so from what I know my mom had to get a lot of antibody shots after my birth. Anyway, my dad is a total meat eater, my mom really does love vegetables and I'm a lover of cheese and dairy (and all sorts of carbohydrates!). So, no surprises there. I don't eat meat though, so I guess I'm not so balanced. Oh well.

    I have B+, but cereals and dairy products affect my my weak intestinal condition, triggering off severe fits and constipation due to my IBS, causing days of suffering with anti-spasmic pills and other painkillers being rather deficient in rectifying the upset balance in my innards...
    I have also replaced red meat by wild and exotic meat, fowls, chicken, turkey and fish....One of my passtimes is experimenting with menus and my closest friends here at the Forum and elsewhere know of my specialities: salmon with paella, ghoulash with springbok and a stew of wild boar with rice dishes....
