What Blood Group Are You?

Post by HoratioTarr on Sun Jul 24, 2016 3:42 pm

I'm AB

Type AB people should consume diets consisting primarily of fruits and vegetables of all kinds. Breaking down meat requires a significant amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Although type A people are genetically prone to low stomach acid and type B people readily tolerate meat, the combination of A and B results in individuals heavily slanted toward A in this respect.

As a result, ABs should limit their meat intake, with tofu being a solid substitute. In addition, chicken contains significant amounts of a substance called lectin, which tends to irritate the digestive tracts of ABs for different reasons. Type AB people can increase stomach acid levels by taking the amino acid L-histidine and bitter herbs and avoiding carbonated beverages.

I once tried the Atkins Diet, and it make me really ill. Now, I know why.

Blood Type O's predisposition to autoimmune thyroid disease - especially hypothyroidism (under production or under utilization of thyroid hormones) - can be a primary factor in fatigue. Long-term stress, without the modifying benefits of exercise, can also be a problem.

Blood Type A is most vulnerable to immune system depletion and one underlying cause is low glutathione levels. Glutathione is the major antioxidant produced inside the cells to protect them from the destructive effects of free radicals. Blood Type B tends to be susceptible to viral infections, including the viruses that produce autoimmune conditions that cause fatigue.

Type AB's, possessing both the A and B antigens, can be compared to having two standing guard at the same gate - this heightens AB's vulnerability to immune conditions.http://www.dadamo.com/txt/index.pl?1012

Did you know that anthropologists believe that type AB blood did not originate until 900-1000 years ago and came into existence when eastern Mongolian invaders overran the last of European civilization?

It is a common belief in Japan that your personality, career and even your diet can be influenced by your blood type.

Type AB: Sensitive and proud, diplomatic, discriminating, easygoing, sympathetic, efficient, learns quickly, organized, friendly

AB’s can be restless, brilliant, wild and passionate. They may be well aware of their environment, dislikes, and instinctive feelings, and may try to be useful to other people. AB’s are the smallest blood group and often are natural problem solvers. They are most likely to be health care professionals, bartenders, and teachers. They have a tendency towards diplomacy, aptitude for teaching and a love of most foods. AB’s are the most spiritual of the blood types – and include many fortune tellers, clairvoyants and faith-healers. In more traditional jobs, their coolness of character and rational thinking makes them good strategic planners, diplomats and attorneys. Very organized but not particularly innovative or creative, they make good department managers, bureaucrats and negotiators.

Type O: Confident, strong-willed, judgmental, dedicated, self-determined, competitive, goal-oriented

O’s can have great energy and strong survival instincts. They enjoy power – and aren’t shy about attempting to seize it. Very competitive, they are the pit bulls of the business world, making excellent, if not sometimes dogmatic, bosses – better at making money than friends. O’s may be decisive and positive, but selfishness and arrogance are also typical traits. They may have a strong sense of purpose and be romantic, easily influenced, and good at organizing activities. They have an aptitude for writing and a love of hearty eating and exercise. O’s aspire to positions of power and leadership and may be born achievers. They may make the best government leaders, heads of corporations, and captains of sports teams.

Type A: Obedient, careful, sympathetic, reserved, self-sacrificing, polite, willing to compromise, honest, loyal, reliable, a team player, persistent, and methodical

A’s may be sensitive and considerate, work to keep the peace, adapt well to new things, and tend to hold in stress. They may also be calm, obey rules, value relationships with others, and be cautious. A’s, the second most common blood type, crave order and neatness. They have a tendency towards idealism, aptitude for farming and a love of vegetables. Due to their meticulous habits, A’s may be best suited to work in libraries, police departments and museums. They may be deep thinkers and incredibly self-controlled. A’s are order-oriented and don’t like surprises. They are best suited for “detail” jobs, but not those requiring creative thinking. Good team players, but poor management material.

Type B: Cheerful, outgoing, optimistic, adventurous, active, sensitive, kind, independent, a self-starter

B’s are the most balanced blood type – they often strive for harmony in relationships. They may do things at their own pace, have a strong personality, and be optimistic and easy to get along with. They have a tendency towards diversity, aptitude for sleuthing and a love of all food. B’s thrive on the unusual and tend to be candid, forthright, and non-conformist. They may make great cooks and thrive in professions such as journalism. These unconventional free spirits are highly creative, honest and hard-working employees – but their inability to delegate and their lack of shyness in “calling ‘em as they see ‘em” prohibits them from climbing to the top in any traditional corporate settings. What they lack in diplomacy, they more than make up for in ideas, energy and the ability to get things done.

I'm the blood type that's supposed to be vegetarian, and I only looked it up after I realised I really didnt like meat. The stuff it tells me to avoid happened to be the good I avoided anyway, naturally.

For Lord Foul...



Royal RH Factor

Just about all of the European Royal families have the RH Negative (Rhesus Monkey Factor Negative, RH-) blood with a high degree of “O” type blood. Prince Charles, for example is RH-type O (http://www.time.com/time/magazin...). Thus we can establish that there is a unique blood type for Royal nobility. The distribution of RH-blood is less than 5% in total world population.

Since Karl Landsteiner discovered blood grouping in 1901 there has since been over 30 groups added with over 600 blood group antigens. It seems that the antigen found in European Royal families has a distribution of less than .1%. RH-blood can contain elevated Copper levels when compared to all other blood types. This elevated Copper content may allow for a more pronounce Blue hue to the appearance of the blood while in the vein.

TOMMY probably has oily black blood...

Like on The X-Files when people were injected with that alien DNA..


OR, maybe it's whitish --  like when you step on a cockroach or a spider.

I have deleted the rest as its so bad and unscientific, and even though I am no expert. Straight away i can see how poorly based this off  by the above claim on the Mongalian invasions, when they did not happen until the start of the 13th century, which rules out any such claim or any credible anthropologist making such a claim.

Anyway here is a real Biology Professor PZ Myers to show why it is so poor based scientifically:


Larry Moran is proudly Canadian, so this must have hurt a little bit: Canadian Blood Services is advertising with a load of codswallop about your blood type. This is complete nonsense:
[list="border: 0px; font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 8px 2em; outline: 0px; padding: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background: transparent;"]
[*]Type A: So, you’re an A. You already know that having type A blood suggests that you are reliable, a team player and may benefit from a vegetarian diet*. Did you also know that anthropologists believe that type A blood originated in Asia or the middle east between 25,000 and 15,000 BC?
[*]Type B: So, you’re a B. You already know that having type B blood suggests that you are independent, a self-starter and may benefit from a wholesome well-balanced diet*. Did you also know that anthropologists believe that type B blood appeared between 15,000 and 10,000 BC in the Himalayas?
[*]Type AB: So, you’re an AB. You already know that having type AB blood suggests that you are organized, friendly and may enjoy a vegetarian or wholesome well-balanced diet*. Did you also know that anthropologists believe that type AB blood did not originate until 900-1000 years ago and came into existence when eastern Mongolian invaders overran the last of European civilization?
[*]Type O: So, you’re an O. You already know that having type O blood suggests that you might be competitive, goal oriented and a real meat eater*. Did you also know that anthropologists believe that type O is the oldest and most common blood type, originating in Southern Africa?
[/list]
Notice the personality descriptions are vague and always positive: this is classic woo technique. Forget your blood type, just read the descriptions, and if you’re willing to go along, they’ll always fit you. This is the same trick astrologers use, formulating anemic, non-specific ‘predictions’ that the gullible reader can retrofit to their own situation.

But the claims about the origins of these blood types are simply lies! They aren’t even consistent: how can you claim A and B arose over 10,000 years ago, but that the heterozygote AB never occurred until 1000 years ago? Since the ABO blood types are present in other apes, like chimpanzees, it’s obvious that claims of recent origin are bogus. Also, as Larry points out, type O is the null allele — it’s caused by a non-functional transferase enzyme. It’s pretty damned unlikely that it is the oldest type.

The Canadian site does list their sources: they include a weird Japanese blood type cult and a pop diet book from a naturopathic quack. So here’s an organization that offers important medical services, and they are peddling woo of the rankest, stupidest kind. I know that blood from morons is just as good as blood from geniuses, but really…why would you want to miseducate your clients?

Plenty of people that buy into something that plays on this weakness by offering up pseudo positives based off blood.

That plays on peoples insecurities as why else would people even need to buy into such things unless they lacked self esteem?

Bottom Line: Not a single well designed study has been conducted to either confirm or refute the benefits of the blood type diet.

The Blood Type Diet: An Evidence-Based Review

A diet called The Blood Type Diet has been popular for almost two decades now.
Proponents of this diet suggest that your blood type determines which foods are best for your health. There are many people who swear by this diet, and claim that it has saved their lives.

But what are the details of the blood type diet, and is it based on any solid evidence?

What is The Blood Type Diet?

The blood type diet, also known as the blood group diet, was popularized by a naturopathic physician called Dr. Peter D’Adamo in the year 1996.

His book, Eat Right 4 Your Type, was incredibly successful. It was a New York Times bestseller, sold millions of copies, and is still wildly popular today.

In this book, he claims that the optimal diet for any one individual depends on the person’s ABO blood type.

He claims that each blood type represents genetic traits of our ancestors, including which diet they evolved to thrive on.

This is how each blood type is supposed to eat:

Type A: Called the agrarian, or cultivator. People who are type A should eat a diet rich in plants, and completely free of “toxic” red meat. This closely resembles a vegetarian diet.

Type B: Called the nomad. These people can eat plants and most meats (except chicken and pork), and can also eat some dairy. However, they should avoid wheat, corn, lentils, tomatoes and a few other foods.

Type AB: Called the enigma. Described as a mix between types A and B. Foods to eat include seafood, tofu, dairy, beans and grains. They should avoid kidney beans, corn, beef and chicken.

Type O: Called the hunter. This is a high-protein diet based largely on meat, fish, poultry, certain fruits and vegetables, but limited in grains, legumes and dairy. It closely resembles the paleo diet.
Lectins are a Proposed Link Between Diet and Blood Type

One of the central theories of the blood type diet has to do with proteins called lectins.
According to the blood type diet theory, there are many lectins in the diet that specifically target different ABO blood types.

It is claimed that eating the wrong types of lectins could lead to agglutination (clumping together) of red blood cells.

There is actually evidence that a small percentage of lectins in raw, uncooked legumes, can have agglutinating activity specific to a certain blood type.

For example, raw lima beans may interact only with the red blood cells in people with blood type A (2).

Overall, however, it appears that the majority of agglutinating lectins react with all ABO blood types (3).



For the record, I think any of these dietary patterns would be an improvement for most people, no matter what their blood type is.

All 4 diets (or “ways of eating”) are mostly based on real, healthy foods, and a huge step up from the standard Western diet of processed junk food.


Take Home Message

I do not doubt that many people have experienced positive results by following the diet. However, this does NOT mean that this was in any way related to their blood type.

Different diets work for different people. Some people do well with a lot of plants and little meat (like the type A diet), while others thrive eating plenty of high-protein animal foods (like the type O diet).

If you got great results on the blood type diet, then perhaps you simply found a diet that happens to be appropriate for your metabolism. It may not have had anything to do with your blood type.

Also, this diet removes the majority of unhealthy processed foods from people’s diets.

Perhaps that is the single biggest reason that it works, without any regard to the different blood types.

That being said, if you went on the blood type diet and it works for you, then by all means keep doing it and don’t let this article dishearten you.

If your current diet ain’t broken, don’t fix it.

From a scientific standpoint, however, the amount of evidence supporting the blood type diet is particularly underwhelming.

So, even if you go on one of these diets and your health improves, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it had anything to do with your blood type.

Maybe the reason for the health benefits is simply that you’re eating healthier food than before

https://authoritynutrition.com/the-blood-type-diet-review/

Bottom Line: Not a single well designed study has been conducted to either confirm or refute the benefits of the blood type diet.

So basically, if it works for you, it matters not. It's a healthy way to eat!

[*]The diet is based on the theory that nutritional needs vary by blood type
[*]Researchers found there is no link between response to the diets and blood type - the results were dependent upon a person's ability to stick to the diet


[*]‘Based on the data of 1,455 study participants, we found no evidence to support the Blood Type Diet theory,’ said the senior author of the study, Dr Ahmed El-Sohemy, Associate Professor at the University of Toronto.
‘The way an individual responds to any one of these diets has absolutely nothing to do with their blood type and has everything to do with their ability to stick to a sensible vegetarian or low-carbohydrate diet,’ he added.
The researchers found the associations they observed between each of the four blood type (A, B, AB, O) diets and the markers of health are independent of the person's blood type.

How did people know what to eat before anyone knew about blood types? I also don't think your personality is influenced by your blood type.

If it makes you eat healthily and you feel good for it, then it's a win win.

Why would it make anyone do that if there's no proof? There's far too much nonsense talked about this sort of thing IMO.

All I know is I have a problem eating lots of meat, which is why I gave up eating it. The Atkins which is all meat, was a real problem for me, it made me ill. Whereas a friend of mine managed ok on it. I never realised until now why I couldn't eat meat but obviously it has something to do with my blood group. If it doesn't, then it's an odd coincidence.

I don't really think your personality is influenced by blood groups...but perhaps before anyone knew about this, they did suffer with dietary problems but just put it down to other reasons.

Same here. I do know quite a few people who have done it and felt so much better, that they carried on with it.

There is zero evidence to both claims made in regards to diets and personalities and sadly they are done to play on those easily persuaded in ordert to make money from them and it works so well. as seen, two have been easily suckered into believing pseudo gibberish in regards to the blood people have. Here is more evidence which even shows the claims have not even been tested and are going off again a person out to make money of vunerable people and how they simple do not work.


There is lots to read and am only posting the end part, but no doubt some will simple not listen or read this, as it simple will shatters their illusions:







"The question of whether someone is better off following a mostly vegetarian, rather than a mixed, or more meat-based diet, should also be based on an individual's biochemical make-up or organ functions - which are ultimately affected by any such diet - rather than on recipes based on blood types, where "Blood Type A" is supposed to avoid animal products (see also "Vegetarianism"). There is nothing worse than seeing a protein-starved, iron-deficient, and anemic patient who was made to believe that following a food list or fad diet outlined in a book would resolve all of one's medical complaints.

  Does the Eat Right for your Blood Type Diet really work, or is it just another Fad?

Conventional medical wisdom dictates that dietary lifestyles should be based on evidence-based, medical, and individual nutritional requirements, while Blood Type Diet proponents recommend diets that are tailored around blood types.  Their concept would make perfect sense if all individuals with the same blood groups
suffered all from the same medical disorders, had all the same nutritional needs, and they all needed the same medications, but that is obviously not the case.

Only the reduced resistance to some diseases can be at times attributed to a particular blood group, but most medical conditions have a genetic basis, which can be equally affected by pathogens, toxic exposure, trauma, medications, and many other factors.  Unfortunately, this pretty well invalidates Peter D'Adamo's "Eat-Right-for-your-Type" proposition if at birth, his Blood Type Diet hypothesis had indeed been valid. ¤"

Ah well. We are all different, and you can only really know how something affects you and your body, by trying it.

They shouldn't have done as its only food - there are no hidden "unknowns" in the food groups.

What happened to them Didge?

Which proves you did not read the link and evidence

No need to say anymore really.

As to someone who was fooled into taking alternative so called cures, yes my brother, who because he did, and delayed getting the treatment that could have saved his life, allowed his prostrate cancer to spread to his bones, which ultimately caused his death.
I have only ever told one person this on here and why its a very good example to show how people are sadly fooled by so many of these so called claims whether on cancer, blood and diets etc, from making them ill to costing them their lives

Wow we've talked about alternative cures dozens of times over the years and you never mentioned this?
So sorry your brother didn't make it but it was his choice so well done for knowing that and standing by him.

But this isn't thread about alternative cures, this is about a healthy eating plan and you said people got ill from going by this diet?
If it doesn't work for a person then they can go back to eating the food groups that they cut down on.

Each food group within this diet isn't unhealthy at all.

Each to their own though, eh? What works for some doesn't work for others.

Standing by him and watch as he allowed himself to die?
Are you serious you are telling me you would not try otherwise to coinvince him as to take the radiotherapy my father took which took his cancer into remission at the time, before later on his heart gave out?
This is a thread about all kinds of quacks out there that play on the vunerable and my brother was one of them and for you to say I should support him kill himself on methods which have no bases to cure anything, is appalling

I am appalled you would advise me I should have backed my bothers choice to been fooled by things he read on the web, that then ended up costing him his life. How on earth can you even have just said that to me, after the fact he did die of cancer?

As to your body, its your brain and only your brain you should listen to, based on if it thinks something is wrong. Like i said where people have a case of impending doom, where they are about to have a massive heart attack., Even pain is is challened through back to the brain, so its your brain you should listen to if something does not feel right, not in reality your body

I think if someone decides on a course of action, you should respect their wishes. He was obviously a man who had done his research.
Don't be angry with him. At least he had control over his own illness. Lots of people choose to do that.

So insensitive its beyond belief.
His research was flawed, because as seen, his cancer spread and the treatment he was taking did zero to stop the cancer.
How is that doing his research?
I am not angry at him, as stated, i am angry at the frauds that play on the vunerable in order to rob them of their money.
Sadly he was convinced by scare stories from this quackadoodle sites and to me i think somebody needs to do something about such false crap being allowed to be marketed on the web, as seen its costing people their lives

Wolf, I can only assume you're stupid. I'm sorry.

For you to claim that you KNOW that I don't listen to MY body - and you know this from across the fucking world having never met me.......?

I'm going to leave it there.
I have no need to actually prove how ridiculously stupid you sound.

Nobody can listen to their body unless they're eating something which gives an immediate response. Most intolerance issues are not that obvious, and they can manifest themselves in mysterious ways.

Sorry to hear about your brother, Didge, that's a tough call, and it must have been hell for you. I totally understand your anger, I would be the same. I lost someone to cancer because they decided to die naturally from the disease, and whilst at the time I was angry and baffled as to why, I eventually accepted that that was the personal choice being made and it wasn't my life to make that choice with. It took me a long time to get my head round it but having seen several people die badly in spite of chemo and radiotherapy I can now also understand the reasoning behind that person's choice. Whilst, I believe that once you have cancer, natural remedies are too little too late, I do believe that preventative food and lifestyles are for real.
