Here's an interesting article I found, on an enzyme which might be able to change a person's blood type:

Many side chain glycosyl (sialyl) transferases can 'de-antigenate' carbohydrate antigens off of cells, including the ABO ones.

This is partially the reason that coffee, snails  and soy are good for folks with an A antigen.

The first time I ever ate snails was about 38yrs ago at a french restaurant.  They said they were escarot, and I had never heard of them.
While  the rest of the people at our table were turning up their noses at them, I asked for more.  What a hoot to find out they were good for me!
Now I buy them and fix them at home...much, much less expensive.

janiceg...I buy whatever is on the shelf, since there is not but one kind.  Sorry that I do not have any right now and am unable to tell you the brand.  I live in a very small town and have to go 30 miles to a university town which caters to their foreign students.
I fix it in oven with ghee and fresh garlic...yum!

That first enzyme sounded very frightening.  As tempting as it may sound, I can't say I would want to change my blood type or anything else for that matter so that I could receive a different type of blood.   It sounds like another way to cut the cost of doing it the right way.

The snails in your garden are a different variety of snail. My fuzzy memory has something about feeding snails cornmeal for a certain period of time to make them okay for eating. An internet search would probably yeild some fascinating details. All I remember is that my conclusion was it was better to buy the snails at the market.  ;D
