It's hard to imagine that my daughter and I are in such a minority.  She's a B and I'm an AB.  My son and wife are just your run of the mil A's.  Hehehehe  Actually, I think it's possible they are nonnies, but we haven't tested them yet.

Another B vote here. The B antigen just isn't very common so that's why there aren't many B's or AB's. I remember when I got tested the lady was shocked I was a B because she hardly ever sees them and then tested my sister who is an AB and got a double shock

Quoted from ABJoe
Let's see...  The general breakdown of population is 40% each O and A.  The remaining is B @ about 15% and AB at about 5%...

This means that there should be about 8 O's, 8 A's, and 3 B's posting here for each AB...


15% for B looks high. Where'd you get the figure? Thanks.

This was my best recollection from reading previously, but here is a source that has O at 43 and B at 12...  I think that qualifies as "about"...

Another with slightly different numbers...

http://bloodcenter.stanford.edu/about_blood/blood_types.html

These numbers are from Stanford University's blood center and are recent, for the US. I consider them reliable. Y'know what's interesting here? The 44%-O, 42%-A, 10%-B, 4%-AB distribution is exactly the same as numbers from 1983. I would think there's been a huge Asian influx, increasing the B proportion, since then, living in California as I do. But, yes, also the O's from Latin America. A's aren't losing any market share, however. Wonder why?

B nonnie. I just voted. B's are just out numbered statistically world wide and this forum has people from all over.   Thanks for the links about blood type percentages. Now I know I'm really unique.

I wonder if there will ever be a new blood type that develops out of necessity?


The twinkies type, or maybe one dependent on corn

Curious:  My brother mentioned hearing something about an "H" blood type, is it his age or is there something to this?  He talks in depth, sometimes, and I don't understand a thing he is saying.


Anyone know anything about this and can explain it in everyday language?  thanks

I've already voted, but thought I'd let the ABs know that one of my husbands friends has started the diet. an AB. He's not on the forums.

I know many who aren't on the forums who've worked with the diet, but I don't think they're supposed to be included in these data.

Teresa.  Type O here. I think I qualify.

So, where did you want to go?
                  

What would you like to go do?

I could make all of those foods in compliant versions (except for the cheeseburger part, since the only way to make a kosher cheeseburger requires highly processed fake cheese. Unless you melt mozzarella on a black bean burger....) I regularly make pizza and chocolate chip cookies with spelt flour.

I'm B+, with a B+ brother, an O+ brother, an O- brother, a B+ dad, and don't know mom's type.  She thought it was A+, she does fit the A profile, and she's not big on eating lots of meat, but shouldn't I have an A brother in there somewhere?  I know it's not necessary...
