What Your Blood Type Means About Your Life Expectancy And Longevity

by admin on April 6, 2015

What Your Blood Type Means About Your Life Expectancy And LongevityWhat is blood type anyways? And what does it have to do with your potential longevity/life expectancy? Well, in the early 1900’s an Austrian scientist was looking at blood cells. He saw that they had two different molecules on them. He labeled these two molecules A and B. People with only A molecules are type A blood. People with only B molecules are type B. Those with both are type AB. Finally, those with neither are type O.

We could talk for days about the culture that has developed around blood types. The Japanese even have a personality chart for blood types. Instead we are going to get down to the nitty gritty. The 2 diseases that kill most people of western culture, heart disease and cancer, and the relationship that your blood type has to do with these deadly diseases. What diseases need you not worry as much about? Blood type is just one more intelligent strategy for taking care of your unique body.

(If you don’t know your blood type, here is the cheapest DIY blood test on Amazon)

Blood Type And Heart Disease – The Number 1 Killer

If you are a blood type O, fortunately, you have a lower risk of heart disease than the other blood types. This is a great relief for you, being that heart disease is the number 1 killer in the west.

Every other blood type, I am sorry, you have a higher risk of heart disease. If you are type A, B or AB, heart disease prevention should be at the top of your list for preventative lifestyle. Walking every day will add years to your life. Meditation or some other form of stress management will likely do the same. The number one dietary addition you can take to keep your heart healthy is the hawthorn berry. 

The hawthorn berry is the most heavily relied on heart disease prevention tool going back thousands of years in humanity. Modern scientific studies now prove that the antioxidants in hawthorn fruit target the heart to strengthen it, prevent heart degeneration, increase stroke volume and decrease the resting heart rate. Hawthorn can even reverse congestive heart failure if taken early on and consistently.

Blood Type And Cancer – The Number 2 Cause Of Death

Once again, blood type O is the lucky group here. The highest percentage of cancer patients (all cancers) are blood type B, closely followed by type AB and A. Type O tends to have a resistance and better outcome when diagnosed.

It is important that non O type blood groups do not look at this as a death sentence. Statistically, you are not super far off of from the type O cancer statistics. If you worry about it, you will only further increase your cancer risk.

If you compare a blood type O person who lives in an unhealthy fashion with a non blood type O who practices a healthy lifestyle, the type O person is now at a much greater risk of cancer than the other blood types. So you see, the power is still in your hands.

Still, if you are non blood type O, you need to be fighting cancer decades before you get it. This will add years to your life.

These are strategie you should use to greatly reduce your cancer risk..

Lean up- The more excess fat on your body, the higher the cancer risk. If you are overweight, take it slow, relax, trust the process. You will get there, as long as you are moving in the right direction, 1 pound of fat here, 2 pounds there.

-Move- Recent studies show that sitting is worse for your health than cigarettes.  Your lymphatic system cleans your body of carcinogens. Sitting almost completely stops your lymphatic system. Your lymph has no heart to pump it, it requires body movement! Follow this rule, never sit for more than 30 minutes. It is okay to sit down to a movie, just make sure to get up 1/3 and 2/3 of the way through and walk around, jump a few times and swing your arms around. This habit will add years to your life.

-Avoid Sunburn- Self explanatory, you need enough sun to keep your vitamin D up, not so much that you burn. Find the balance grasshoppah.

-Strengthen Immunity- It is your immune systems’ job to fight cancer. Additionally there are many viruses in your body which contribute to cancer. If your immune system is strong enough to keep them in check, they won’t be a problem.

Medicinal mushrooms contain polysaccharides which literally feed the production of your white blood cells. This is why medicinal mushrooms are the most powerful tool to naturally fight cancer. Some powerful medicinal mushrooms include shiitake, maitake, chaga, cordyceps and lion’s mane mushroom, which also regenerates brain cells.

Though these are powerful mushrooms, the most powerful immune stimulating mushroom is the reishi mushroom, which has also been called “the mushroom of immortality” for thousands of years.

-Eat Herbs- Herbs and spices are extremely powerful foods, all of them. Every single herb/spice contains dozens of anti-carcinogenic organic compounds. If you supplement several medicinal herbs and spice your food up nice and strong, you are actively fighting cancer.

Why Is Type O More Resistant?

Type O blood types are best suited eating a hunter gatherer diet while blood type A and B seem to be more adapted to agriculture. Could it be that the natural roots of the O blood type give it a wild resilience? Maybe.


Hopefully this doesn’t seem too doom and gloom for the blood type A, B and ABs. You guys take this as motivation for your health practice. Look at yourself as royalty. Only take in the best quality food, water and air and you may even live past 100.

For us blood type Os, we can’t get a chip on our shoulders. We mustn’t become overly confident, for if we let ourselves go, our life expectancy will be shorter than the type As and Bs.
