Many carbohydrate-rich foods are also lectin-rich foods. In addition to blood type, the lectin content of the carbohydrate sources was also not taken into account. WRONG carbs for a particular blood type can contain insulin-mimicking lectins, which will activate tyrosine hydroxlase and tissue active lipase, two intracellular enzymes found in adipose tissue which impair the function of a third enzyme called triglyceride lipase. This results in insulin resistance, a risk factor for heart disease 3 fold greater than elevated cholesterol and 4-5 times greater than elevated homocysteine.
The RIGHT carbs won't do that.
It will probably be years before these factors are accounted for in research protocols...
