Although all blood contains the same basic components, not everyone has the same types of markers on their red blood cells.
These are known as antigens, which are exactly proteins and sugars that our bodies use to identify the blood cells.
There are four main blood groups classified:
– Type A – a marker known as “A.”
– Type B – a marker is known as “B.”
– Type AB – both A and B markers.
– Type O – neither A or B markers.
– Plus Rh factor (+ or -) doubled the types of groups, so in fact, there are 8 types of blood groups.
The people with blood group 0 are giving blood to all other groups, as they don’t have in the erythrocytes factors that destroy someone else’s blood. Because of that they can give blood to all other groups but receive blood only from their blood type.
However, there are many other facts that should be known for this type of blood. The differences from the other blood groups are seen, for instance in the resistance to some diseases, which for the people who have that type is not the case, as they are more prone than any other blood group.
The common diseases for that type of blood are thyroid dysfunction, low levels of thyroid hormones, iodine deficiency, and ulcers. For this reason, the people with 0 type, should be very careful, as these dysfunctions can be pretty dangerous, and they can lead to many unwanted effects such as water retention and excessive body weight.
Contrariwise, this blood group has many other powerful characteristics that the other groups don’t have, which makes it very special.
The main characteristics of the people with blood group 0 are the ability to lead and to be concentrated on things, their high energy and their pro-activity. Because of that, they can be very powerful and productive.
In some countries around the world, the type of blood is very important, such in Japan. There it has always been associated with a certain type of personality, and what is very interesting even in some job interviews they even ask about the blood type.
According to Japanese the people with blood type 0 are more practical, focused, thorough, organized, responsible and dedicated. In addition, many believe that these people are better and clearer logicians than others.
Hyperactivity and impulsiveness are characteristics that are linked to those people, too.
They can become hyperactive, impulsive and even angry if they are under the stress. They are more vulnerable to the harmful metabolic processes, due to their unhealthy habits, the tendency to stress, poor diet or lack of exercise.
For them is also known that they have higher levels of stomach acid than any other blood group, so their stomach sensitivity can cause the formation of ulcers.
The strong recommendation for those people is to avoid alcohol and caffeine. Caffeine can raise the level of adrenaline, which is already higher in people with blood type is 0.
The physical activities (exercises) for those people should be 3 to 4 times a week.
