Blood type affects susceptibility to disease

Blood type actually has an influence on the propensity of a person to certain diseases. This fact is confirmed by the head of laboratory diagnostics of the Center for blood FMBA Russia.

During a meeting with journalists Ivanova was a question about whether blood type can affect the predisposition of individuals to certain diseases, and the expert answered in the affirmative. In particular, the holders of the first blood group are more likely to be prone to diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, evidenced by few studies.

Carriers of the second group of blood have increased susceptibility to development of atherosclerosis of vessels of lower extremities, as well as lung cancer and breast cancer. Also, this group affects susceptibility to bleeding disorders.

People with third blood group, according to available data, scientists more often than others are prone to urogenital infections.

The fourth group of blood, as stated in the medical journal of the American Academy of neurology, affects the susceptibility to the development of processes leading to loss of memory and thinking and associated degenerative diseases. People with a fourth blood group have a particularly high risk of dementia. In turn, these disorders are much less likely to suffer from other carriers of the first group of blood.

Scientific studies have found a link between blood type and risk of heart attack and other heart problems. It turned out that people with the first, third and fourth blood groups more prone to blood clots and heart disease, while people with first blood so the risk is minimal. In turn, Japanese scientists discovered that blood type affects the propensity for a particularly high risk of dying from a serious injury – the risk is almost three times higher compared with other blood groups.
