Doesn't have anything to do with hard exercise

I can't see the relationship to hard exercise. Obviously, the first study cited had nothing to do with exercise. And Pasquale, who is very well known in weight lifting circles and was one of the early promoters of a low-carb diet (cyclic ketogenic) for gaining muscle mass, is talking about over training, not blood type. I think we're all pretty cleaer that over trainign is bad for anybody. But over training is a function of fitness level and adequate recovery, as has been abundantly proved in literature on exercise physiology.

The question, as far as I can see, remains open. I don't want to be disrespectful, but no, I don't think the first study raises any "thinking point" about the relationship between hard exercise and type A's. The study was too small to show a significant statistical difference between A and B types, and the "stressor" was unrelated to exercise. Because exercise releases many chemicals in the body, including endorphins that give athletes a "natural high", I would say that the study is far too limited to even begin to address the effects of strenuous exercise on type A men and women who are at a high level of fitness.
