Fact or fiction: Your blood type affects the food you can eat

This diet plan became quite popular – but is it really true?

According to this theory, proposed by Dr Peter J. D'Adamo in his book Eat Right 4 Your Type, people with different blood types have different nutritional needs. But it's pure science fiction. There is no credible science behind this theory and around the world the medical community scoff at it. Common sense also tells us to stay clear of diets which make us avoid a whole range of nutritious foods.

The bottom line: Myth

Eat right for your health, enjoyment and well-being, not for your blood type!
