Just a curious question. If I married and had kids with another O, would they be less likely to be healthy than if I had married an A or a B? Also would they without a doubt be O as well, or could they possibly turn out a different type?

It is unlikely I would get along with another O, however. But having all O's in the family would make things a lot easier, food wise.

Evan-I would think it would all depend on how healthy each of you are and, of course, the gene thing.

And...what's wrong with another O?   Oops sorry...you did say it was you that could not get along with another O.

Well, it's just a guess. I don't really know anybody elses blood types, because they don't follow the diet. So who knows? Do you have a good relationship with another O? I kinda thought it was like personality types...you know: two extroverts won't get along very well, and two introverts won't get along very well. Although, I've noticed I have a more B type personality.

I guess it's impossible to determine some of this stuff just from blood type.

I wish you could get your genes analyzed and from that determine the possible genes of any kids. I wouldn't want to have deformed or disabled kids because I married the wrong person.

Not necessarily. Kids inherit their father's blood type or father's mother's blood type. It's called 'revenge of the grandma' or something to that effect.

Don't forget individuality!!  Myself O neg nonnie married to O pos prob. secreter are both very different to each other and then our children all very different to each other as well and all O's .....if you're into numerology we all have different number paths which makes life very interesting in our small but very diverse community !    

Good luck

....what a pleasure ...my co-therapist is an O...I guess nonnie....her husband is an O as well...but here I guess a secretor......her both sons are O's for sure ...the whole family is  a very toughy, loud but vivid bunch.......they are just awesome to watch for.......and I must say it was more than super and graciours from her to sign a paper that she wasn't willing to give her both kids Ritalin (yessss I will be honest...it was me who put on her the right pressure )
but then she went for fatty acids, B-vits, and a bit of magnesium and all went fine ...sooo what's about that bloody Ritalin...huh we are going to give it to the teacher....and won't be shy, I am waiting until she/he has taken it....on his/her  own

Yep my situation: I´m a Bo - my ex boyfriend Ao- and we had a tough OO kid very surprised- I had forgot about the revenge.....
Grandmothers revenge- in this case it was both the grandmothers who was O´s ...

My first husband is an O and our children are Os.  As near as I can tell our daughter is an O secretor and our son is a non-secretor.  I am introverted, and he is extroverted, our children are in between.  We are all pretty healty, no bone breaks on either side of the family.  His mother just died at age 91 despite being a life-long smoker and having breast cancer in her fifties.  My parents are alive at 82 and 87.  It certainly is easier to deal with a one blood type household, especially if you are used to eating as an O.  I find it much harder to sense what is helpful for my second husband, an A.  Suzanne's blogs help with that.

Much more important would be flexibility and openness to doing things differently.  I watch some good friends who are have a mixed household.  They tend toward vegetarian menus since the wife is an A.  The O husband eats meat outside of the home.  While the wife is quite slender, the husband is putting on a little weight with what is served at home.

As for friends who do not follow the diet, often you can tell their blood type from what they are eating, especially if they seem healthy and happy. Then there are people like my daughter.  She would like to be a vegetarian for philosophical reasons, but after finding that she could not function well on that diet she reluctantly added chicken and fish to her diet.  She knows that beef would be better for her, but can't do it yet.  She might do it for a healthy pregnancy.

If you as an O marry another O, there is no doubt that you will have O children...  O is the recessive, so there can't be any A or B in the mix.  I think the children of any blood type can be healthy, we as parents just need to feed them correctly...

The Secretor status may have a larger influence on a child's health than the blood type...  Non-Secretor is the recessive, so it may be lurking and come out in children.

Well, if you married another O, all of your kids would be Os.  If you married an AB, your kids could be A or B.  If you married an A, your kids could be A or O.  And lastly, if you married a B, your kids could be B or O.  
I can't really say if any of those combinations would be worse than the others, they all have the plusses and minuses!

As we learned at the 2007 IfHI conference that the most important time is correct nutrition and good health for the women before she becomes pregnant. The importance or impact of nutrition decreases from that point on for the offspring.

shells ...I don't believe in that ADD....sorry read some things in the Keirsey's program about *chose it or lose it* and feel enlightned with that...dito onto the boldness of sp-stylers and O's especially...that becomes a double challenge and I see only 2 boys, very toughy, healthy and quiet ok at their behaviour and intellectuall degrees, but not that  facile to handle it right for the  teachers...so please have an eye into *gifts differing* from Briggs-Myers and about why teachers aren't able to handle their classes ....he-he-hee it's soo true... the most simple things aren't done correctly....placing different types at their right seats....so what and their needs for movements and right foods without wheat...as well
but dearle that won't fit into their lazy program of every day shedules...ha-hi-hoo-----
bad...very baaad  

I'll bet for it dearle that those teachers arent' that thursty for their own pillies ...
even when I'll stand nearby waiting until he/she'd swallowed it

My parents and 5 living siblings are all O's, and I'm glad of it.
I only read the first few posts (trying to avoid going to work...) will read the whole thing later.
Cheers, dudes & dudettes

Isa, I do not really believe in ADD either...society (their teachers) are the ones that label them and complain to parents (me) about their behavior.  

My 17yo is such a high energy 'O' and found upper high school sitting at a desk & studying not for him. So at 16yrs I ended up taking him out of school and getting him into an apprenticeship  (electrician) ... he just loves to be DOING something!

As a male type O you really don't have to worry about this, since a type O is a universal donor.

However, a type O woman should think about this and if she marries a blood type incompatible man she should reduce the chance or amount of a hostile environment her immune system might produce during conception and development by following the BTD.

Madl... check out the link below. My dear friend's husband began a foundation years ago in Tucson addressing this very issue... that "toughy" children have nothing wrong with them. He wrote a book entitled "Transforming the Difficult Child" which is really about transforming the adults in their lives to relate to them in ways that meet their needs... rather than medicating them into compliance.

my son got expelled from preschool!!!
talk about incompetence and teachers wanting a one size fit all classroom to have less individuality to deal with!!
wheat laden kids with no initiative is what they aim to have inside classrooms.
son is now in med school.......guess he wasn t the monster they wanted all to believe he was.

My husband is a O ,so I do see why you say two O's would be a challenge! I am a AB our children are B,AB,B and all are wonderful healthy BTD little people, now that I got the hang of cooking for 3 different types. I think once you understand the personality of the different types you can appreciate them more. I had to make my O husband re-read the personality chapters in the BTD book since us B's and AB's make him want to scream.Maybe another O would be a good thing!
