I'm more of a reader of these boards then a poster, but I wanted to share something I found. I was reading up on the blood type discussion, and while I dont know mine (shame on me), I am fairly sure I am type O as well.
I think many of us have heard of eating fish-rich diets or taking omega-3 supplements. Well, this article I found might enlighten those type-O folks to think twice about ingesting cod liver oil or other kinds of fish oil.
It also ties in the leaky gut theory a bit if you read into it as it mentions, "increased gastrointestinal tract permeability and increased manifestations of delayed patterns of food allergy," as reasons to avoid fish oils if you're a "type O non-secretor."
I hope this helps someone.
