The American Heart Association’s journal “Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology” published a recent study revealing that having blood types A, B or AB was associated with a higher risk for heart disease when compared to those who had blood type O (about 43 percent of Americans).
- People with blood type AB, about seven percent of the U.S. population, had the highest increased heart disease risk at 23 percent.
- Those with blood type B had an 11 percent increased risk.
- Those with blood type A had a five percent increased risk.
