Hi i had a question wondering ok i have heard and read that most people are blood type O. Well since O is a recessive gene how is it that there are so many O types when the other ones should be dominating. I just dont understand it?
It must be a founder effect. Two of the group you name are south american nativesOriginally posted by Monique
I wonder though, why this selection for O-bloodtype??
I wonder if the minor bloodtypes (like Rh) would also be the same in all the individuals, that would distinguish between founder effect or selection..Originally posted by iansmith

Anyway, if I remember correctly, other mammal have the simialar kind of blood type. I wonder what is the difference between carnivorous, omnivorous and herbivorous blood type distribution.Eat Right 4 Your Type (Dr. Peter D'Adamo)
Premise: The author, Dr. D'Adamo, claims that each blood type has its own unique antigen marker that reacts in negative ways with certain foods, and individuals have varying levels of stomach acidity and digestive enzymes that seem to correlate with blood type. This diet provides a detailed list of foods to eat or avoid, depending on your blood type.
Facts: Although you may find it comforting to have a list of foods to eat or avoid, there's no scientific evidence that diets should be based on blood type.
Is the gene always linked to the same blood type?Originally posted by Monique
Just remember that all these diets have nothing to do with the bloodtype itself, but rather with a gene that is LINKED to that bloodtype.
