Hi everyone.

I have recently asked if you are rhesus positive, what you secretor status is.

Now I am interested in knowing what your secretor status is if you are rhesus negative.

More to come ...

I'm an A- secretor. My kids and husband are different blood types than I am. My dad is A+ and mom is O- and I don't know their secretor statuses.

I'm O negative & pretty sure I am a nonnie?!(Not 100% as saliva test got lost in summer & discovered a few weeks later...)

I have just blogged this link.

To all the visitors coming from my site:

A "nonnie" is a non-secretor. :)

My partner and I are both O negative Secretors. Still a bit dubious about the secretor status though as saliva test (sent all the way to the States) had us both as nonnies and Lewis blood test here said we're both Secretors so??  Secretor SWAMI seems to work much better for us both though so likely that's correct.

I'm starting to think I'm a nonnie -- my nonnie-fied SWAMI fits me better.

Rh negative blood types does not necessarily mean non secretor.  A small portion of people have a gene where their blood type antigens are not really secreted in body fluids.  Most people are secretors and secrete their blood type antigens in body fluids and the like.

I found out recently at a lab at my workplace that i am a non secretor in fact.  I suspected it.  Non secretors have more trouble clearing toxins i think.  Another reason for me to sweat!  I feel great after sweating! I don't know what the use is in being a non secretor, seems like clearing toxins more easily would be adaptive.

Quoted Text
ABO blood groups and secretor status are important in clinical and forensic medicine and in relation to some diseases. There are geographic and racial differences in their frequencies, but the frequency of secretor status in different ABO blood group systems has not been determined yet. Therefore, the aim of this study was mainly to determine this point. Blood and saliva from 762 randomly selected apparently healthy adult individuals (480 men and 282 women) were examined to determine their ABO and Rhesus blood groups by standard conventional methods, and their secretor status by using Lewis blood grouping and/or hemagglutination inhibition test of saliva. Results showed that 76.1% of the study population were ABH blood group antigens secretors and 23.9% were nonsecretors. The frequencies of secretor status in different ABO blood groups were 70.1% in group A, 67.8% in group B, 67.9% in group AB, and 88.3% in group O. In conclusion, blood group O individuals have significantly higher frequency of secretor status than non-O blood group individuals. This finding would be beneficial to them, protecting them, at least partially, from certain malignancies or allowing them to have less aggressive disease, and this finding might be useful in enhancing further studies and research in this direction.

In Rh(D)-positive individuals, 76% were secretors and 24% were nonsecretors, while in Rh(D)-negative individuals 77% were secretors and 23% were nonsecretors (Table 3). Statistically, no significant differences were found in the secretor status between men and women (P > 0.05) as well as between Rh(D)-positive and Rh(D)-negative individuals (P > 0.05).!po=32.1429
