BTD Forums  /  Journal Club and Literature Review  /  Research Articles On ABO and Disease Connections
Posted by: Harry O, Thursday, February 10, 2011, 1:18pm
I was just reading through some of the archives on my fave science site ( and came  across a couple of studies firstly mentioning the connection between ABO blood type and pancreatic cancer rates and secondly a study comparing ABO blood types and sickness when exposed certain bacteria in the gut. If these have been posted on here in the past by either forum members or Dr. D'Adamo then my apologies for duplication.

Quoted from First article
They found that, compared to participants with type O blood, those with type A had a 32 percent higher chance of incurring pancreatic cancer, those with type AB had a 51 percent higher chance, and those with type B had a 72 percent higher chance.

Although there are 'only' 40,000 cases of Pancreatic Cancer diagnosed in the US each year you would think with all the attention being paid to Obesity and Diabetes this sort of research result would raise a red flag in the scientific community. Wouldn't you?

Quoted from Blood type study sheds light on biology of pancreatic cancer
Within the entire group, 17 percent of pancreatic cancers were attributable to inheriting a non-O blood group.
Quoted from Bacteria-killing proteins cover blood type blind spot.
A set of proteins found in our intestines can recognize and kill bacteria that have human blood type molecules on their surfaces, scientists at Emory University School of Medicine have discovered.
The pull quotes are fantastic, and the language seems to indicate that someone, with access to a research grant, has been reading Dr. D' Adamo,s material!
