That's baloney: Your blood type has no relationship to your best diet or to your overall health. This whole business was made up by a crook in the 1990's to sell books. Becoming a vegetarian is a moral choice rather than one that will improve your health -- the best studies show no real impact when you control for the fact that vegetarians tend to have other healthy habits. ...Read more
