Blood type affects the type and amount of allergy-causing lectins circulating in the blood stream. Type As have higher levels of selectin (a substance that increases inflammation) and produce more mucus. Type Bs are prone to viral infections and lung inflammation, including asthma. Type Os tend to have higher levels of overall inflammation. Type ABs are relatively less prone to allergies.
Type O should avoid dairy, wheat and consume lean meat, cold-water fish, and green tea. Type A should avoid animal proteins and fresh milk, limit grains, and include cold-water fish in their diet. Type B should avoid wheat, corn, peanuts, chicken and include lean organic meat and yogurt. Type AB should avoid red meat, chicken, corn flour and consume soy and seafood.
