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?

From the website errata:

Quoted Text
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.

Thanks Lloyd, that is good news. I was worried that I have been doing the wrong thing.

What do you mean?  Errata page?


Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again.  Blessings, meribelle
