    I just stumbled accross this 3 months ago. Basically, it says each blood type (A,B,AB,O) does better eating certain types of "beneficial foods" and staying away from "avoid foods." Type O being good on meat diets and Type A doing poorly on meat diets, and Type B being one of the very fiew people to be able to digest dairy fully well.

    Has anybody heard of this?

    I think it is also based on stommach acid and lectins and agglutination (dont know what any that is lol ) except that they all depend on blood type what kinds of food agglutinate and what foods are best with high stommach acid (O) and low stommach acid (A).

    The blood type frenzy come from some asian countries like Japan. They* believe that the blood type give you some psychological characteristics. Some blood type are considered better for being a leader than others. It lead to a certain form of racism, like the one that said you can't do a job because of your blood type.

    In a medical point of vue, blood cell is only important when it come to blood transfusion. I do not care at all about your blood type.

    * when I say they, I speak of a relatively large amount of people, and not a vast majority.

    I just want to point out there these is a big difference between racism and discrimination. As far as I can tell, as long as you don't force your ideas on to other, nothing is wrong with discrimination.

    Discrimination: ability to notice and value quality: the ability to appreciate good quality or taste.

    That being said, I too believe anyone can do what they want. Although, it is wise to find one's own strong points. Whether or not blood type has a role in this I cannot say. Very interesting though.

    Yes discrimination is perhaps a better description. Racism is just a form of it. But it leads to the same consequences.

    Explain why certain blood types are most wanted for leaders and others not ?
    It do not make any sense in a biological point of vue.
    AB are just agglutinins. What next : HLA discrimination ?

    Blood personalities and alike are just now a joke but one day genetic will allow a scientific discrimination : it means that it would be a serious thing like in the movie welcome to Agatha. I seriously recommand to watch this movie.

    The internet is a giant selfservice. You can find whatever you want.

    Do you think that there is a special diet, for blond, black, or red haired people ?

    Do you know what is the placebo effect ?

    Do you know that some good reports are not a scientific study ? I have a small story for the last one.
    The dermatologist send me a patient with a skin cancer proved by a biopsy. I saw her in consultation and we scheduled a date for the surgery procedure.
    The day of the surgery procedure, I checked her very carefully, and did not see anymore the cancer. By prudence, and by fear of pissing some mighty professors, I remove a small part of skin at the place of this lesion, and send it to the histologist.
    There was nothing.
    So the cancer dispeared without any intervention (it happen sometimes). According to your opinion, what credit will you give me, if I claimed that the tumor was erased granted to some magical skills coming from me ?

    yep.

    hmmm


    well i see what you saying.

    And here some things that blood do:


    1) Replenish oxygen and remove carbon dioxide.
    2) Distribute essential nutrients to cells.
    3) Carry away metabolic waste materials for disposal
    4) Recognize antigens and produce antibodies
    5) Clot cuts, wounds, and scratches, to prevent bleeding

    http://www.carterbloodcare.org/wsf/blooddo.htm


    Blood is vastly different from person to person. One blood type wouldnt handle these 5 points the same as a totally different blood type. Like transfusions, certain foods could be rejected in people because of their blood.

    Sorry but ABO do not change the five points you mentionned. AB are just an antigen on the red blood cell. It's just related to transfusion. ABO is just a cross compatibility system, between various antigenic variants of bloods.
    let's detail all your points :
    1) it's related to the hemoglobin and the red cells. There is pathological form or red cells and hemoglobin, but it's not directly related to ABO. For example drepanocytosis is frequent in africa.
    2) distribution : nothing to do with red or white cells : just a question of having a good heart and good circulation system
    3) carry away : same than the point 2
    4) related to white blood cell, and antibody. ABO system is only limited to the agglutination and destruction of two variants of blood between them.
    5) related to coagulation with many factors and co factors and platelets.

    Now there is genetical traits that should have an importance for diets.
    Here is some :
    - protective protein for cholesterol. I have one, and I don't have any cholesterol problem. So cholesterol is not a problem for me, and I am not concerned by these type of diet.
    - genetic traits deciding if you are stockpiling fat. Some people "burn" all the food in excess they eat .We all knows those big and slim eaters.
    - people lacking lactase : these people are becoming sick when they eat milk, because they loosed the ability to assimilate lactose, when they becomed older.
    ...

    So a good diet, is for the vast majority of people, a diet including many fruits and vegetable and various type of foods. Diet is in the main part a question of balance.
    There might be custom fitting, like the one for athletes, but in a general way balance is the key.

    I asked my teacher about this and apparantly there was a book written on it. According to her (like the rest of us) it seems totally bogus.

    The flat earth theory was build on a dogma, and had nothing to do with scientific studies.
    I wonder on what the blood diet study is based on ? : a dogma, or sciences ?

    That's not how science works. Most theories can't be proven, but before they are supported by logic and start making sense to a large number of scientists they are of no value.

    Just a little extract from the following link, who made me laugh :

    Nevertheless, based on Dr D’Adamo’s theory, I’m looking forward to the evolution of blood type F! People with blood type F will need lots of fast food, takeaways, pizza, sugary snacks, crisps and chocolate to remain in tune with their environment. After all, if the theory is correct, surely that’s what we can expect, based on what many of us now eat in the 21st century!

    Juz wondering if mosquitios prefer which blood type?

    The other day, a group of friends and I stayed over at this camp full of mosquitos. For no apparent reasons, the mosquitos sting only 2 - 3 particular friends with O blood type. And the rest like A and B were fine.

    **I know that this experiment sound lame, but I cant deny the fact that the mosquitos sting my particular friends with type O blood instead of us with A and B blood type
