Predicting the future can mean saving ourselves from many misfortunes. Sometimes predicting the future can tell us what we can expect and whether or not we can change these circumstances. If the future of the human condition could be predicted, then we would have the ability to stop illnesses and suffering, thus lengthening our life span and greatly improving its quality. If there was a way to tell who would get certain diseases and why, then maybe, just maybe, we could eliminate those issues altogether.
Scientists have found something remarkable as a result of surveys and various tests – there may be a link between the blood type and memory problems. It seems that the human blood type may be a marker that points us to certain diseases. It appears that blood type AB has secrets to reveal, notions that may give us an inside picture on how some illnesses develop. Not only is AB a very rare blood type, it can also hold mysteries when unlocked, can change the way we see the future
A study was conducted by Dr. Mary Cushman, professor of hematology of Vermont College of medicine, who compared type O and type AB blood. In these studies, a group of people were tested using memory and thinking skill exams. These tests were simple and focused toward measuring cognitive abilities in adults. Out of 587 participants, 495 showed slow cognitive abilities, to the point of being considered memory impaired. After filtering these participants by age, race and sex, the study showed that 82% of blood type AB individuals suffered from some form of slight memory loss.
This may seem surprising to some but to others, this evidence is not strange at all. A previous study, also conducted by Cushman, connected those with AB blood type to incidences of alternate blood clotting abilities due to the clotting factor VIII. The clotting factor is important because not enough of this factor and individuals can suffer from conditions such as hemophilia, but too much of this factor can lead to blood clots.
It seems that those with this more rare AB type, which means the high clotting factor, have the predisposition of acquiring heart disease symptoms and strokes. This, in turn, leads back to the known fact that strokes and heart failure play a huge part in the development of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. It seems, from this perspective, that they are all connected.
What the professionals want us to know
Although this theory suggests a bleak outlook for those who are born with AB blood type, it is not conclusive. It seems that those who are obese, non-active and have poor diets are at a much higher risk of developing both heart problems and memory loss regardless to what blood type these individuals have. It doesn’t matter what blood type you are, there is a need to lead a healthy lifestyle in order to decrease your chances of developing these unfortunate problems later on in life.
