Study: Type O Blood Helps Avoid Heart Disease
A pair of studies, published in the journal of the American Heart Association, suggest that your blood type plays a role in the likelihood that you’ll develop heart disease.
FOX News Radio’s Jane Metzler has details:
Oh, to have Type O! Two huge multi-decade studies, reviewed by the Harvard School of Public Health, finding people with Type O blood – roughly 45% of Americans – have a slightly lower risk of developing heart disease. The research, not intended to explain the reason why, but scientists say people with other blood types do have higher levels of proteins that cause clots and plaque buildup on the arteries.
Those with Type A-B blood had the highest heart disease risk – 20% higher than those with Type O. People with Type B: an 11% higher risk. Those with Type A blood: 8% higher.
