QUESTION: I am a Type A and have been doing your Blood Type Diet for 8 months (fairly religiously) with huge benefits. I note that avocado is a neutral food from the fruit/vegetable list. A new product on the market here in New Zealand is cold pressed avocado oil which is delicious - is this a good thing for an A Type? Personally I find it a rather nice substitute for olive oil especially on salads and steamed vegetables.
ANSWER: TYPEbase II list avocado neutral for blood group A and blood group O non-secretors. The oil is not atherogenic (causing excessive artery plaque formation) so it would rank as 'neutral' for blood group A. Note: since avocado can be problematic for the other blood groups, they should consider avocado oil an avoid no different than avocado. Until further elaboration, group O non-secretors should consider the oil an avoid.
