Both parents are O blood types and of course so are all of their offspring. I am O- and I know that at least one of my sisters is though I don't know what my other siblings are. I think that none of my siblings were in danger of being "blue babies" (from a Rh- mother and a Rh+ father) though I would have to ask, so that would mean that both of my parents were either - or + or that my mother is + and my father is -. Is that latter presumption correct?

By the way, found this chart of blood type distribution at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_type

Also a chart of blood type compatibility (in terms of transfusions). Pretty interesting stuff.

I'm AB husband is O both rh-.  Haven't yet tested the three kids and my parent.  My husbands mother is O as well as his sister and nephew.  

Here's a small observation.  So here I am amongst all these "dominant" O's how is it that I, quit AB, run the show when we're all together.  Isn't in O's nature to be more aggressive?

We're all unique individuals. Blood type personality might explain general traits, but it doesnt' explain individual responses.

I could make all of those foods in compliant versions (except for the cheeseburger part, since the only way to make a kosher cheeseburger requires highly processed fake cheese. Unless you melt mozzarella on a black bean burger....) I regularly make pizza and chocolate chip cookies with spelt flour.

I have found i love turkey burgers!

Did you know chimpanzee blood can be transfused to humans if needed in a pinch if it is a blood match?  Chimpanzees are almost all blood type A and some O.

I learned this in a book "Among the Great Apes" that i am reading.  I think this is cool.

I'm an O and so are my two children.  

I vaguely recall a show I saw long ago, I think it was on Oprah, that talked about people having blood transfusions and then taking on some very different characteristics after that, probably implying that they took on the characteristics of the people whose blood it was.  Not sure if there is or isn't anything to that, but it was interesting.

Apropos the blood type distribution - as an A I find it rather comforting that in Norway and Sweden, top countries with the highest life expectancy, about 50% of population is type A.

another B here

my family - well... it's complicated.

my birthfather is AB+ and my half sibs are B-, AB+, and B-
(their mom was an A-)

My nieces and nephews are predominantly Bs and ABs, as are my aunts and cousins

I don't know my dad's secretor status for sure, but i would wager he is a nonnie.


my birth mother is O+ and a nonnie. I do not know what my 2 half sibs are. The younger one is almost for certain an O (he's a gatherer and half pacific aboriginal). The other i am not sure... he is half japanese so ?? If i had to guess... i would say he is probably a B.

I think the usual dietary emphasis in advertising food is wrong for O's.

The grocery stores have this emphasis.

If O's are pitta types, O's don't fare well at restaurants either. Restaurants seem best for ayurvedic vata and kapha types. I think they are most motivated to own the restaurant and determine the menu.

I would say O's are the most likely to need helpful information.

If and A or B lived in a meat and potatoes environment, they would be left out. As an O, I am happier without the potatoes.

Now, where is that red meat, vegetables, and local fruit society?

I would add:

If we are ayurvedic pitta types, our digestive fire is strong. We consume practically anything, feeling well at the time.

However, pitta types are subject to chronic illnesses that take a long time to appear. I think that is explained by having consummed foods to avoid for our blood type and, very likely, our genotype.

If we find the blood type diet, we have a great deal to be grateful for.

It would be better, if we had the blood type and genotype diet at an earlier age.

If the participants in the forum are here because we have recognized problems in connection with food, I would expect more type O pitta types because of the food emphasis in the common dietary guidelines and at the grocery store and at restaurants.

I used to think only neurotic individuals were concerned over much about food.

Now, I think everyone should be aware of ayurvedic type, blood type, and genotype and food.
