There is a vast span of human existence of which little is known. Archeological ruins from the beginnings of civilization have been unearthed, and there have been occasional discoveries of a more prehistoric nature, but not much else. The impermanency of our physical existence is responsible for this void; our flesh and body fluids rapidly decompose after death. Unless preserved by extraordinary means, even skeletal remains eventually crumble and disappear. Early peoples did not practice ceremonial burial. Left to the elements, bodies soon completely decomposed: "Dust to dust" was not a mere poetic metaphor. It was a recorded observation of our transient natures.
Only in the last century have scientists and anthropologists begun using biological markers such as the blood groups in the search for humanity's imprint on our distant past. These studies have allowed a greater understanding of the movements and groupings of early peoples as they adapted to changing climates, mutating germs, and uncertain food supplies. Recent analyses, using sophisticated genetic measures, have produced the most accurate picture to date of human evolution.
The variations, strengths and weaknesses of each blood group can be seen as part of humanitys continual process of acclimating to different environmental challenges. Most of these challenges have involved the digestive and immune systems. It is no surprise, then, that many of the distinctions between the blood groups involve basic functions of our digestive and immune systems.Evolution is usually considered in the context of millions of years, which is the time frame needed to explain the many differences between animals or other species. Yet humanitys own life span provides ample time for the myriad number of small day-to-day refinements, representing the constant struggle between inherited traits and environmental challenges.

Bloody interesting article! Good show, Chap!
I read his book a few decades ago while I was a strict vegetarian. Tested my blood and I am in the highly meat eater group. I could not do it and even though I do eat some meat now, it’s very infrequent. I don’t see how I’m to force myself to eat something that does not appeal to me and at times makes me vomit as the main part f my diet. in my opinion his system is flawed.
It’s dry and a slog to read through, but absolutely fascinating. Sorely in need of a few maps, graphs, and charts.
Thanks for posting.
Excellent article. Thanks for posting.
Bottom line, we’re still very ignorant about nutrition, and each one of us is a bit different. So my advice is to eat a bit of everything and moderation.
Check out Dr. Eades "Protein Power". Physiology defines diet, not some cock-sure simplistic b.s. "Find your blood type" method.
Don’t know whether blood type diet is junque science, but I don’t really like the list of best foods for AB- blood type. We’re so rare, .6% of population, what can anyone possibly know about us without actually sitting in this body and experiencing the experience? I eat what I like. It happens to line up quite nicely with the Eades’ book, Protein Power. Healthy as a horse. Try to eat everything organic and take a lot of supplements. No one can believe my age.....especially not my trainer at the gym.
We had the National Geographic genome test done... our history doesn’t particularly line up with the Blood Type Diet’s author’s ideas of where we came from.
