Why Can Type O's Tolerate Tomatoes?

Dear Dr. D'Adamo,
In your book you say that tomatoes are a panhemaglutinan, i.e. that they glutinate the blood of all types. However, you then say that type O's can eat them because O's don't produce antibodies to them and they become "neutral" in their systems.
Now I'm a type O and I like tomatoes so this is all fine with me, but I'm a little unclear about why and how they would become neutralized.
(I realize you have them classed as a "neutral" food (for type O) and thus something to be used in moderation, but I was just curious as to the process involved.)
