I'm on the forums of a raw diet site now. The subject of BTD came up and somebody wanted to know if Dr. D tested cooked food or raw food, or did it really matter. I said I would ask here (actually, I said I would e-mail Dr. D himself, but I can't find where to do that. On "Ask Dr. D" I can only find where he answers questions, not where I can ask one, but I might be missing it). The poster said that she read from one health "guru" (her word) that when you eat raw, blood type doesn't matter. I argued with that, saying for example a fruit might be an avoid but the juice (assumed to be pasteurized/heated/cooked) might be neutral, and also that a grain might be bad but a sprouted bread using that grain might be fine. I also said I can't eat tomatoes whether cooked or raw or peppers cooked or raw....but on second thought that might not be a good example because I'm allergic to nightshades. Any thoughts on this?

In some cases, yes. In other cases, such as tomatoes, the lectin activity is enhanced by cooking. The recommendations for foods are inclusive of whether the food is eaten raw or cooked, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
I'll vouch for that. I can tolerate raw tomatoes no problem. Cooked tomatoes like spaghetti sauce gave me the worst indigestion imaginable if I wasn't careful.. One time when I was younger, I had indigestion for a month from the sauce.
