Does anyone know this man's credentials?

Dr. Ronald Roth  D.Acu
who has 'spoken' on the blood type diet

http://www.acu-cell.com/btd.html

I'm in e-mail coinversation with an O-type with multiple health problems who is on the verge of 'risking' reading Dr D's book, but I think she sent me the above link as another reason why she shouldn't!!

I think it means that he has his diploma in acupuncture, so basically he is not even an LaC or a Oriental medicine practicioner, he went to a 6 mon-year program to learn points and acupuncture

Not to seem rude but his chart for Blood Type distributions looks a little off.

Europe: O 45%  A 42%? Sorry, don't think so.

Any idea what the true ratio is?  I've just been to the Blood Transfusion Service and they say O is the commonest in UK.

Joyce


I wont venture  exact numbers on this but all the numbers I have ever seen on this issue indicate that A is more numerous than O in every European country except Belguim. Holland and the British isles. Here is a Wikipedia article with a representitive chart.

 Blood Types

O is more numerous in the British Isles as well as areas colonized and populated by the English. ( ie. Canada, US, Australia, New Zealand). A is more common in Europe, I believe, due to the effect of previous disease epidemics which selected O's as victims over A's.

I posted that comment as the chart he provided seems a little askew casting some doubt on whatever else he has to say. Will see if I can find a more extensive chart on distribution.

OK here is a second chart. Depends on what you define exactly as 'Europe' but I would think that as you move south or south-west from Western Europe (ie. toward the A and B origins the numbers of A,B, and AB would rise). From what I have seen the A over O applies almost uniformly in Europe.

Blood Types 2

I notice some other odd exceptions here ie. Lithuania and Sardinia ???

Last semester I had an ongoing with my English teacher about the BTD.  I wrote a paper on the BTD.  She Googled it and this site is what she looked at.  This acu-cell fella says that any dietary changes necessary because of food allergies have a genetic basis and nothing to do with blood type.  I pointed out to my teacher that this guy doesn't seem to have done a thorough reading of Dr. D's books.  Now the semester's over, but I'm still in this conversation with my teacher.  I think next I'll point out some stuff from the book, The China Study, which says that the food industry and the drug industry have a major influence over what's taught at universities and what's considered healthy by our government.

Well, it's pretty funny on one hand to say that allergies have a genetic basis, and totally ignore the fact that blood type is "genetic" also.  It's a known human variant.

What might be helpful to you, is to print entries from The Individualist Wiki about the various polymorphisms that have been documented related to blood type.  I'm specificially thinking about these two entries:

IAP

Boy'd Report of Lectin Specificity

Thanks, KK.  Yeah, I think the IAP is huge in proving BTD validity.  I'll take a look at the Boy'd link.

The thing I like about the Boyd entry is that it shows where scientists knew about plants being species specific, and then they learned they could be blood type specific, and voila! "Lectins" were named.

Oh one more would be the different levels of stress hormones that are naturally in the blood stream, and the fact that the different types clear one or the other easier.

The stress hormone levels is another good one.  In fact I showed her the study on stress hormone levels after having blood drawn.  I appreciate all the help KK, but she seems to want some well known MD or organization to say that the BTD is healthy.  The China Study says, "Medical education and drug companies are in bed together, and have been for quite some time" (Campbell 332).  There's a whole chapter about this.  If people can be healthy on their own by eating and living a certain way then who are they going to sell drugs to?  By showing her this maybe I'll open up her mind a bit, maybe not.  The reality is I need to do one more revision of this paper in order for her to give me a grade in the class.  It's a very odd situation and I suppose I could talk to some other people at the school to get my grade without doing one more revision.  My teacher is probably in her 60's and she and those close to her are old and deal with health problems.  So it could be of great benefit to her if she were to try out the BTD long enough to know what we BTDers know.  I'll give her one last paper and get my grade; what she does with it is out of my control.
