“And any man of the house of Israel, or any of the strangers who live as foreigners among them, who eats any blood, I will set my face against that soul who eats blood and will cut him off from among his people, Bible

“I will set my face against that soul who eats blood.” As far as historians know, the prohibition against eating blood was uniquely practiced by Israel. It seems that since God forbade eating blood right after the Flood (Gen. 9:4; although admittedly that command is somewhat unclear) many cultures would have forbidden eating blood, but that does not seem to be the case.
