I do know do not ask a doctor of history if his medical doctor father wanted him to become a real doctor. Learned that one the hard way.
So you're saying you wouldn't take medical advice from a PhD? I would hope not

PhDs aren't generally referred to as doctors, although that is part of their title. When people say doctor, especially in the context of this thread, it's understood, I think, that we're referring to a physician.

My apologies. I spent 5 years addressing PhD's as doctors.
But then as far as the medical field goes: there are some nurses with PhDs.
In general, no I wouldn't take medical advice from a PhD or a doctor on network TV.
I would also not take medical advice from any doctor that guarantees his diet will work for everyone regardless of the degree.

I would be more inclined to take the advice of someone who said quitting smoking did wonders for my health.

I would address someone with a Phd as "Doctor", but I wouldn't refer to them as a "doctor".

You misunderstood my comment. I provided a link to a scientific research article showing that the blood-type diet doesn’t work. I don't care how many people think it does; I care what the research shows.

NeuroLogica Blog » Blood Type Diet – Disproved

The book about eating for your blood type was written by Peter d'Adamo, who is a naturopath. To me, that makes it unreliable since naturopaths are not real doctors.
It's time for me to leave this thread.
I've read both sides.
I just feel healthier not eating so much bread/potatoes/corn (in almost every processed food).

I'm not surprised that you feel better eating less bread, potatoes, corn and processed food. Most people would, no matter their blood type.
