The concept of blood type diet developed by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo, in a book Eat Right for your Blood Type, is an interesting concept based on the notion that people of different blood types do better on certain diets. Though it sounds intriguing, the concept has little scientific peer-reviewed studies to back it up. It is to your judgement whether to follow this diet or not.
