Back in the early 90's Dr.Datamo argues in his best-seller book Eat according to your blood type that when the blood comes in contact with certain food components, a chemical reaction occurs, specifically with proteins called lectin. 30 years later Dr. Steven Gundry in his book The Plant Paradox argues the same thing i.e that Lectins, which are proteins found in food, are believed to have a direct effect on the blood and the digestive tract.
