Scientists from the University of Toronto discovered that the famous blood type diet which helps individuals to have all the nutritional needs satisfied isn`t valid. The results of this study are published in PLoS One. The senior author of the study is Dr. Ahmed El-Sohemy, Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Nutrigenomics at the University of Toronto.
El-Sohemy states that “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”.
The researchers discovered that associations with all four blood types (A, B, AB and 0) are independent from the diets. This diet was written in the book Eat Right for Your Type, by Peter D`Adamo, neuropath. According to the theory of the diet, individuals who choose the blood type diet depending on their blood type can improve their life. The group of researchers led by EL-Sohemy did not find any evidence in this matter.
