American scientists have finally revealed the results from a research in which they were trying to find out what blood type is most prone to heart diseases.
The study included 50,000 participants from northwestern Iran, and the research lasted for seven years.
It was shown that individuals with blood groups A, B, AB have an average 9% higher risk of death due to difficulties with their health than those with blood group 0.
Respondents from the first group had an average 15% higher risk of death due to heart disease than their peers with blood type 0.
Besides that, participants with blood groups A, B or AB had an average 55% higher risk of death from stomach cancer when compared to those with blood type zero.
Scientists emphasize that the results did not affect factors such as age, smoking, gender, socio-economic status or ethnic origin.
