Can blood type predict many threats to health?
Recent research provided major breakthroughs, resulting with strong indicators as blood type can be a key influence in multiple aspects of body health, starting from infertility to an increased risk of cancer.
There are four groups of blood types – A, B, AB and O. All with two Rh factors, plus and minus. The average adult has about 4-6 liters blood circulating in the body. It makes blood present in almost every part of the body, influencing every reaction of the body.
The different letters associated with blood types represent different types of antigen in your blood. They are microscopic substances that live on the surface of red blood cells. Blood type O is the unique in this bunch because it has no antigens on its own. When mixed with other blood types, it takes on antigens of the other blood type, which makes it a universal donor to all other blood types.
Blood type reveals which systems of body are most vulnerable, also most likely to develop a disease under certain circumstances. This is very valuable knowledge to use to prevent the possible development of chronic diseases and to improve overall health.
1.Blood type A
People with blood type A are at greater risk of stomach cancer compared to other groups. Women that belong in this blood group are more vulnerable to develop stomach cancer than the men, especially smokers or frequently drink alcohol. This is because this blood type has been associated with alcoholism and also obsessive compulsive disorders, due to naturally release higher levels of cortisol in stressful situations, and it makes them more prone to negative effects of stress.
The bright side is that women with blood type A are very fertile meaning they are more capable of getting pregnant in older age.
2.Blood type B
These people are more prone to pancreatic cancer also inflammations, infections. They are more vulnerable to autoimmune diseases. Blood types B and AB also are at the greatest risk of heart disease. Cognitive functioning is more prone to develop memory issues which may lead to dementia also Alzheimer’s in older age.
But, they have strong metabolism and digestive system, more efficient in turning the consumed food into energy and according to research people with type blood B contain up to 50.000 times the number of strains of friendly gut bacteria than other people.
3.Blood type O
These people are prone to obesity and stomach ulcers which are caused by Helicobacter pylori bacteria. Also, fertility of women with this blood type is reduced due to having less egg cells with poorer quality.
The good news about blood type O has reduced the risk of heart attacks and stomach. According to study it is found they are 32% less likely to develop pancreatic cancer, they have better natural ability to cope with stress by produce less cortisol and its levels can decrease quickly after a stress but, they are prone to overproducing adrenaline during that times of stress. This all means they benefit more from high-intensity exercise as a way to handle stress.

Denmark study found that this blood type group is prone than others to develop deep-vein thrombosis, life-threatening blood clots legs and clogs can travel to other organs, as well as the brain. Also another study from the University of Vermont found these people are 82% more prone to develop thinking and memory issues which can lead to dementia. Positive side for this people is that cortisol levels are more stable, meaning they’re more immune to stres similar to people with blood type O, and also have a better vision and experience less eyesight issues.
