The Optimal Blood TYPE AB Diet
This will conclude our oh so LONG discussion on the book "Eat Right For Your Type" by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo. But, if you have questions feel free to continue to ask. If you care for the info, feel free to read. But since it is so long you may only want to read it unless you or someone you know is a TYPE AB. TYPE O & TYPE A & TYPE B were discussed in my previous posts. If you haven't checked it out in a few days, you should look the posts over because I have updated a lot.
