In the Complete Blood Type Encyclopedia, Dr. D. writes (in the section "Group O-Specific Lectins", p. 348 ) : "Blood group O should also avoid catfish, eels, caviar, walnuts, eggplants, white potatoes, alfa sprouts and blackberries. Rh-positive O individuals should avoid blueberries, bananas and papayas." I have eaten more walnuts, bananas, blueberries and papayas because I thought the walnuts, bananas and blueberries are beneficial and papayas are neutral for O's. Have I got this wrong and should I stop eating them - or is the paragraph I quoted in the book a misprint?
The lectin lists on pages 348-49 conflict with the diet. Which is right?
1) Page 348 contains instructions which conflict with the type O food lists. The second paragraph under the heading Group O-Specific Lectins should be ignored in favor of the food list values. 2) Page 349 contains instructions which conflict with the type B food lists. The paragraph under the heading Group B-Specific Lectins should be ignored in favor of the food list values. 3) Page 349, regarding type AB: The statement that "Blood group AB should avoid any of the foods that contain lectins capable of reacting with groups A or B" is only a key to understanding many of the type AB food values. It does not mean that ABs should use the A and B food lists instead of the AB food list -- which is based on more than just lectin avoidance, as are all the food lists. The AB food lists contain the specific values to be followed.
