Have you ever heard of blood type diet? A chemical reaction occurs between your blood and the foods you eat. This reaction is part of your genetic inheritance. This reaction is caused by a factor called lectins, this substance is abundant and its a diverse protein found in foods, it has an agglutinating properties that affect your blood. So when you eat a foods containing protein lectins that are incompatible with your blood type antigen, the lectins target an organ or bodily system and begin to agglutinate blood cells in that area.

This is something which, at best, is based on very shaky science and quite unjustified assumptions that, for example, the type O blood group is associated with people descended from primeval hunters (mainly meat eaters) and type A from primeval 'gatherers' (mostly vegetarian). While the diets suggested may not be actually harmful (for anyone, regardless of their blood group) they are not shown to be positively beneficial, either. A very good article which goes into good detail about how and why the d'Adamo theory (and thus Dr Lim's site) should not be taken seriously is here: http://www.veg.ca/content/view/128/110/

I have never heard of the blood type diet . I believe in the genetic polymorphism of human whose evidences are too many to enumerate,for example ,pollinosis,urticaria,penicillin anaphylaxis.

People keep writing about this diet and it just doesn't seem to get around that that it has no scientific backing at all. If it was true, people living in an environment where their food choices are very limited would have completely different reactions and states of health. Unfortunately, there's no way to keep people from passing around nonsense like this.
