Diet Myth#3: BLOOD TYPE DIET MYTH: Blood types have nothing to do with diets.

BLOOD TYPE DIET MYTH: Blood types have nothing to do with diets. Blood types evolved 20 million years ago but were discovered in 1900 when Dr. Landsteiner discovered that blood cells from some people in his lab stuck together while others did not. He named the blood types A,B,and C (later changed to O). The AB group was discovered later and he won the Nobel Prize in 1930 for his contribution to blood transfusion but it had nothing to do with diet. For example if you have blood type O it is claimed you are more efficient at converting carbs to fat. This idea has been totally debunked. Why was this popular? It was the first attempt at a personalized diet based on genetic differences between individuals. Today we are looking at these differences using genetic methods not available when this diet came out that actually relate to nutrition and metabolism. However, blood types have nothing to do with diet or weight loss and everything to do with blood transfusion. #drdavidheber #blood #bloodtype #diet to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
