A Canadian research team has conducted a study that fails to support the “blood type diet” theories of naturopath Peter D’Adamo. The Canadian study involved 1,455 people whose dietary intake was assessed to determine how well they had adhered to each of D’Adamo’s “blood-type” diets.

However, the study found no relationship between the improvements and the subject’s ABO blood types, which negates D’Adamo’s basic assertions.
