    Blood Clots

    Type AB, A, and B increases risk

    Blood-type AB, A, or B had up to a 40 percent higher risk of developing deep-vein thrombosis as opposed to people with type O. Blood-type O’s have lower quantities of the proteins that help blood coagulate, so they're less likely to suffer from blood clots.

    Heart Disease

    Type AB, B, and A all have an increased risk

    Compared to people with blood-type O blood | AB blood had a 23 percent increased risk.B blood had an 11 percent higher risk | A blood had 5 percent greater risk.


    Type A tends to have higher stress levels

    Blood-type O produces the least amount of the stress hormone cortisol and Blood-type A produces the most.When cortisol is continually over-produced it can cause adrenal exhaustion and the corresponding symptoms of depression and fatigue.


    Blood-type O’s reaction to stress can cause an overproduction of adrenaline which can make them more susceptible to anxiety when stressed.


    Type O has the lowest risk

    Blood-type A, B and AB have up to 9 percent higher risk of cardiovascular issues such as stroke.

    Stomach Cancer

    A, B, or AB have an increased risk

    Blood-type A  has a 20 percent more likely of developing gastric cancer than blood-type O.

    Pancreatic Cancer

    More benefits for blood-type O's: You're 37% less likely to develop pancreatic cancer than people with other blood types.

    Dementia & Memory Loss

    AB are a whopping 82 percent more likely to develop cognitive issues in the future, most likely because they have larger amounts of the factor VIII protein, which helps with blood clotting.


    People with A or B blood-type have up to 21 percent greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes. B positive had the highest odds.

    Mosquitoes like Type O Blood

    It’s all about the blood for mosquitoes, well that and nectar. Adult mosquitoes survive on nectar for nourishment, but females rely on the protein in our blood for the production of eggs. So it’s little surprise that some blood types may be more desirable than others.

    Blood-type O’s are likely to be twice as attractive to mosquitoes as blood-type As, with blood-type B’s falling in the middle.


    Recreational athletes with blood-type O have better endurance performance compared to those with non-O blood group types.
