Here is your chance to help in this research area. Prof. Jaroslav Flegr, PhD. has contacted us to help publicize this online test that his group is currently running. He is at Charles University, Prague; and studies effects of biological factors on human behavior and physiology.
Dr. Flegr: "In the past four years we published 7 scientific papers showing strong effects of Rhesus blood group type on human behavior and performance. Recently, we have got some (relatively strong) evidence for an existence of effect of Rh factor on human health, namely on risk of certain diseases and disorders, on memory and performance. (ABO blood types have no such effects). To confirm or disprove this, we prepared a web test containing electronic questionnaire and various performance tests. At the end of test, the respondents are provided some information about their results. The test usually takes 40 minutes; however, most of respondents enjoy it."
Here is the link to the online test: https://cuhumanities.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3qTfoQeK2FnuHf7
And here are links to Dr. Flegr's published papers & a recent magazine article:
Those still enamored of the 'blood type diet' simply must go read this wiki 'talk' page. Those long disillusioned will enjoy reading it even more!
Good grief! He kept going back and carping, and whining...trying to twist the truth to fit his imaginary crap and nonsensical pseudo-scientific pretensions.
And it didn't work. He got caught. He was called out;
with the brutal truth.
My favorite quote, from Alteripse: " To date, no such evidence of the value and efficacy of the Blood Type Diet has been published. "
And we will clue you in --- it never will be. LMAO
You have a very interesting website about the blood group diet. This is my
first time heard this kind of diet. I came to your site because I am doing
research with antibody and recently I find my antibody binds to a blood
group. I like the way you present scientific background for the people who
could be misled by some strange ideas. It provides me with some information

Thanks so much for your page on the blood diet scam. I thought it sounded weird, so it's good to have that confirmed.
I was wondering though about the term "lysis". I noticed it listed next to certain foods or spices, like basil for example.
Does this mean that basil is safe to eat...or??? I'd appreciate a reply.
Yes, all foods are safe to eat. Understand that in testing these food substances for reactions, the researchers put them into contact with human blood of the various HBO groups, on microscope slides, outside of the human body. This does not happen when you ingest the foods of course, so the problem with the lectins affecting the blood cells does not occur.
Lysis means that the blood cell outer membranes disintegrate, the cells rupture. So, if you injected the foods directly into your veins there would be a few problems ............, lol.

I have found your info on the blood group diet and would like to ask a question. I saw a naturopath about a month ago who put me on the diet (for o blood group) and swears by it. She said that when I eat or drink something on the 'not recommended' list, it is like I am poisoning my system.
I am just wondering, do you think this diet is true? I am afraid that if I have taken on the doctors belief, then if I do eat something like wheat that it will affect me, as it is all in the mind.
I would be most grateful for your opinon.
No, its not true. The naturopath who wrote the book claimed that ‘lectins’ in various foods interacted with different blood types cell markers in damaging ways. This claim is untrue. We have found scientific evidence that these lectins act exactly the same way with each blood type, whether it is A, O, B or AB. Please see the chart on the page here. It will show you that.
There is absolutely no evidence that blood type has anything at all to do with foods that are good or bad for you.
Also, while we were using the blood type diet, there were many people on his bulletin board who were blood type A who reported experiencing significant problems in a variety of ways. Most were tired and sleepy all day, many gained unwanted weight, quite a few became diabetic. We noticed many type O people reported significant increases in problematic blood cholesterol, and they had terrible times trying to avoid eating some of the restricted grains – the body seems to need it, and they actually craved it. They would periodically binge on grains, some going literally bonkers over it. Lol
Further, if you get a chance, look for one of his later books (in your public library, don’t bother buying it) , called ‘The Genotype Diet’. In this book, he claims the food you eat should be based on various measurements, like finger length, the pattern of your fingerprints, and other body measurements; not just blood type. Another unsound idea, totally unsupported by any scientific basis, just as his first book on blood type diet. So.....the naturopath completely changed his advice and claims; he apparently didn’t even believe his OWN blood type DIET!! :D
Some of his most ardent followers found out after measuring themselves, that they had been eating the wrong diet for years based on his new claims, YET they said they had done well on the old diet which he now was telling them was ‘poison’ for them. You can imagine how hard we were laughing at hearing this....
Greetings, thanks so much for your reply and for the info, I really appreciate it :)
Yes, the grain restrictions have been really challenging. I cut out all wheat and then I realised it was no corn either which then cut out most other things. I am already as skinny as a rake and felt like I have barely been eating and that it has been very unflexible.
The naturopath that I saw said the diet is anti-aging and it will sky rocket my energy levels which was the reason I consulted a naturopath in the first place but I can honestly say that I have been just as tired, if not more, on the diet.
I really appreciate your time, thanks again.
