You can change everything in your life, but not your blood type. She is what you genetically come into this world with.
On the surface of red blood cells are substances passed down from both of your parents. These substances interact with the immune system in ways that change the risk of developing some common diseases.
Depending on whether you are A, B, AB or 0 blood type determines your risk and likelihood of suffering from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, as well as some other common ailments in our time.
Here's what your blood type can mean for you!
Blood type AB may increase the risk of cognitive brain damage, according to a study in the journal Neurology. In particular, adults with blood type AB are more likely to develop problems with remembering, late-life learning, and working memory.
More bad news for blood type AB. Research has found that people with this blood type have an increased risk of developing stomach cancer later in life.
The risk is 26% higher compared to people carrying blood type B or 0, is the conclusion of the study by American epidemiologists.
If you carry blood group A the risk is 20% higher compared to groups B and 0.
According to scientists, the bacterium H. Pylori may be at the root of this risk. Two-thirds of the world's population carry this type of stomach bacteria in their bodies. People of group AB and A may have an increased immune response to these bacteria, which increases the risk of cancer.
These same bacteria can also cause stomach ulcers in addition to cancer. Carriers of blood groups A and AB are again at increased risk, compared to the zero group. These blood types somehow change the immune response to the bacteria.
B and AB are the most risky here. Being a blood type zero can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease by up to 23%. Lifestyle is also important.
According to studies, B and AB are associated with increased levels of inflammation in the body due to the specific immune response in patients with these two blood types.
People carrying the most common zero blood type again benefit from this – they have up to 37% lower risk of developing this extremely dangerous and difficult to treat type of cancer.
The bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori) is again at the root of the problem. The growth of the colonies of this type of bacteria cause a malignant change in the functional tissues of the organs.
Although blood type carries certain risks of developing certain diseases, this should not worry you much. Blood type cannot be changed anyway.
Therefore, the hottest advice of doctors and specialists is to maintain a maximum level of he althy lifestylet, as well as to conduct regular examinations at specialists with the aim of prevention.
