|Something to annoy the meat-eaters

I learned something very interesting today. It wont make a difference in my life span, but it’s a rare case of certain inevitable progression.|
For a long time I’ve been aware of the scientific theory that people need to choose their diet according to the different blood groups, because the A, B and O blood factors affect how your body digests and delivers nutrients from the food you consume.
Eat right for your blood type:
More on blood type diets:
The current scientific belief is that early in ancient history humans were all blood type O, being a hunting species. Then around 25,000 BC and 15,000 BC when humans colonised the Himalayan Mountains and needed to rely on a more agrarian lifestyle the A and B blood factors emerged. The O type blood group is of course more common, at least for now…
(Scroll down to “Principles”)
Similar happened to the Kangaroo species. The current theory is that they were once a carnivorous / omnivores species (some zoologists argue that the traits still exist in modern macropod species) but adapted to climate change and became herbivores. Although a few remain, like the Tiger Quoll and the Tasmanian Devil, they’re not in large numbers (and the Tasmanian Tiger has already snuffed it in the 1930’s).
Now here’s something I only learned today….
In humans the O blood group is on a recessive gene. When couples marry, and produce offspring, the A and B blood types stand a high chance of overriding the O group.
This means that eventually the O blood type will diminish and disappear.
So enjoy those hamburgers while you can, because like it or not all you furry foxes, wolves, tigers, dragons, hyenas, birds of prey, alligators, sharks and so forth will ultimately have great, great, great grand children who’ll grow up to be like White Pony & myself, eating salad for lunch. Pttthhpp!! :P
Pass me the zucchini please…
