Fascinating stuff on the blood types. As Ananda points out in an earlier message, she has picked up the 'blood type diet' paradigm. It sounds like one of those pseudo-science ideas to me. I can't think of any serious scientific research that could have proven that any blood type 'originated' with a lifestyle. Ancient DNA samples are very rare and basing any generalizations to entire populations based on those very sparse samples would be very risky. It seems unlikely that even a rigorous scientific proof that these diets really work for people of a given blood type might be possible. But if it 'works' for some people, what the heck.

Oddly, though, l recall always hearing/reading that type O was rarer than A and B, with only AB being rarer. Yet according to what you have dug up "Blood type O, in man is by far the most common in virtually every racial group." and there are entire populations that are nearly pure type O. Interesting.
