“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 and Canada Research Chair in Nutrigenomics at the U of T.
Jan. 15, 2014 — Researchers from the University of Toronto (U of T) have found that the theory behind the popular blood type diet–which claims an individual’s nutritional needs vary by blood type–is not valid. The findings are published this week in PLoS One.
When I heard about the blood type diet it made no sense to me. I mean where was the hard evidence proving this to be true. Not only that when you look at vegans for example they come from all blood types and still can thrive on the diet. This study at least gives people some sense that anyone can come up with a theory and write a book n the subject as a expert in the matter. Most people don’t research nutrition and fall for these type of diets. I say stay a skeptic and question things. Do your own research on the matter and don’t do something just because a lot of people say to do it. Think for yourself.
