Reported Results From Detoxification Survey:

Blood Type O

The goal of this survey was to determine if "Pathological Detoxifier Status" shows any preference for secretor status or ABO type. In some people the detoxification pathways in the liver (Phases I and II) are out of balance. For example, if Phase I is more active than Phase II, a build up of reactive intermediate metabolites can occur which in turn can lead to tissue damage and disease. These people are referred to as Pathological Detoxifiers. Pathological detoxifiers can be identified as those individuals who are highly sensitive to fumes e.g. paints and perfumes, react adversely to various pharmaceutical drugs and may have a reaction to drinking caffeine.
