Why Are People with Blood Type O So Special?

The liquid that runs through our veins is known as blood vital for our sole existence. However, we all have different blood and because of that the distinction of four blood groups was established: A, B, AB, and O. According to this distinction certain theories have evolved that the personality of the people is determined by which blood groups we belong, and that every blood type should follow certain type of nutrition.

WellnessKeen states the following:

Blood type, also known as blood group, though not unique, differs from person to person. For a safe transfusion, blood types need to be matched in a specific way. Broadly, there are four major groups of blood, namely A, B, AB, and O. These are determined by the presence or absence of two antigens, A and B, on the surface of red blood cells (RBCs).

Blood types are classified according to what is known as the ABO blood grouping system. These groups are further classified as per the Rh factor (rhesus factor). The Rh factor is the presence or absence of D antigen on the red blood cells.

The negatives A-, B-, AB-, and O- are the blood groups that do not have any antigens on the red blood cells. The positive ones, of course, have antigens present on them.

This ABO system, which was established in the early 20th century, has an international standing, and has a long time affiliation with the International Society of Blood Transfusions.”

The most valuable blood type is considered to be the blood type O as people belonging to this blood type are known as “universal donors.” In the past, it was believed that people with type 0 blood were better hunters due to their ability of good perception of the environment.
