Is the blood type diet right for rh negatives?

The blood type diet has been in the news for years as many celebrities swear by it.
But is it the end-all-be-all?

Despite mixed reviews, most of the participants claim it works for them.
The only problem that I see is that we are not being presented with a lot of information regarding rh negative people and whether or not our common ancestry may cause us to be more sensitive for certain foods and crave others more.

According to The Biotype Diets:

Biotype Rh-negative is a Basque biotype. This type has inherited a Basque gene for blood type Rh-negative from ancient ancestors in the Pyrenees Mountains of France and Spain. Their ancestors adapted to their specific ecosystem over long periods of time in isolation, and modern Rh-negatives have inherited those adaptations. They fare best with a temperate hunter-gatherer diet of Western European foods, such as meats, poultry, seafood, roots, tubers, and European fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds.

Here is one example:

Peanuts are from North America and have not been introduced to Europe before America was officially discovered. It also appears that natives of the Americas are likely 100 percent rh positive. So is it a surprise that rh negative people react the worst to peanuts?

rh negative food allergies

The Biotype Research shows that blood type Rh-negative has more IgE allergies than Rh-positive. In fact, Rh-neg has the highest rate of immediate allergies of all blood types. The graph above is an example. This biotype especially reacts to nuts and beans, but also to eggs, some meats, gluten grains and nightshades, as shown below. Their worst allergen is peanuts, a native American food. IgE Scores of 500-750 are mild, 750-1000 are moderate, and 1000-1250 denote strong allergies. Blood type Rh-negative also displays delayed allergies, including: strong IgG allergens, and some T-cell allergens. (Not shown.) For more on this type, see the Biotype Diets book.
