  1. Just curious really........

    I donated for the first time at my school in October and just got my MS Blood Services card showing my blood type.

    Im type O Negative.Im think that mine is the universal donor and is pretty rare.

    So whats yours?

    I've also been told recently that there's a "eat for your blood type" guide out there.

    Recommendations inside include:

    O types should eat lots of animal flesh.
    AB's should be strictly vegetarian.

    O positive.

    Almost universal donor... I found out when I donated blood when I was 17.

    Actually blood type O is the most common blood type in the world.
    But O negative is rather rare, only about 6% of the population have it.

    I´m B+ myself, 9% of the population are in my group.

    Here are some stats:
    O+ 38%
    A+ 34%
    B+ 9%
    O- 7%
    A- 6%
    AB+ 3%
    B- 2%
    AB- 1%

    I'm the opposite of you all who gave blood. I've been receiving blood transfusions since I started doing chemotherapy. They keep it on ice to keep it fresh and it's really cold when it goes in!
