The Blood Type Diet, as popularized by Peter D’Adamo and others, is typically dismissed by the scientific community due to its easily disprovable tenets and false evolutionary claims. Yet despite the diet’s shaky rationale, blood type may legitimately impact our dietary needs. Emerging research suggests that ABO blood group (and ABH secretor status) can influence the composition of the gut microbiome, and well-established links exist between blood type and susceptibility to certain diet-related conditions (such as heart disease). Consequently, while the popular Blood Type Diet remains largely pseudoscience, ABO blood group may be one factor in how individuals respond to different diets—making it a potential tool for personalized nutrition.
