Turns out that a vegan diet doesn’t benefit one specific blood type, according to recent research published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Those who follow the blood type diet believe that people who have Blood type A benefit most from a vegan diet.
However, the study found that no such link between diet and blood type exists. Instead, the researchers found that plant-based diets were beneficial for everyone, regardless of blood type.
Two studies from 2013 and 2014 similarly did not find evidence to support that tailoring diets to blood types maximized health benefits. The latter study instead found that anyone on the Type A diet – with its focus on eating foods high in grains, fruits and veggies – saw health benefits such as reduced blood pressure, cholesterol, and fat, regardless of blood type.
