Depends.

Good if you bleed to near-death and need blood.

Depending on which bloody type you have, you might as well decide not to bleed to death in specific countries, as there are small but sometimes significant different distributions of the bloody types.

For example: (no guarantee on the figures)

Country 0+ A+ B+ AB+ 0− A− B− AB−
USA 38% 34% 9% 3% 7% 6% 2% 1%
Hong Kong, China 40% 26% 27% 7% <0,3% <0,3% <0,3% <0,3%

I'd say you're pretty safe with 0+ anyway.

B+. Ironic, judging my outlook on life. I'm a blood donor. Not much use for me otherwise, so I may as well be a haemaglobin factory.

Interesting Topic.

I think there may be something here with the blood type. Not as a a cause, but maybe as something that enhances a pre-disposition. I have type O negative and have had to have the Rho-Gam shots and also immunizations.

This is only a theory:

Autistic people have been found to have 67% more neurons in their brains as compared to an average person. It is quite possible that there are some and maybe even many humans that walk the earth with 67% more neurons who are not autistic. Maybe they are gifted or eccentric or normal.

Next, let's discuss the function of neurons in a rudimentary form: The neuron's function in the brain is to transmit information. This occurs through a chain of electrical impulses.

Back to Rho- Gam: To this day, Rho- Gam still contains the preservative Thimerosal ( a derivative of mercury, a well known neuro-toxin ). Rho Gam is an agent that desensitizes an Rh negative pregnant mother's immune system so that her blood does not breach the umbilical cord and attack the baby's, in the case that the baby is RH positive. Pregnant mothers are given this shot generally between 6 and 7 months.

I have had the shots during pregnancy and they make me feel odd, sometimes like an out of body experience.

Let's go back to the person with 67% more neurons. How much more damage ( as compared to an average person) can a neurotoxin do to a person who's brain pathways are naturally more packed with neurons? Mercury is a metal. It is an electro-conductor. It could cause a lot of damage either through electric charges or direct chemical damage to the coating of the neurons. The paths were already more complex to begin with, then you add mercury to burn a few bridges and maybe you get a child who is severely autistic.

I have O-, my blood is so clean and light I have to fend off marauding physicians attempting to steal my immaculate, un-burdened by clumsy antigens, blood with their gross pokey needles! I have donated blood before, It sucks. hey, it does, literally!

I am not aspie, but would just add that I am MFA and do not have A blood type. My parents are both A I think, but I am 0+

I have blood type B+. I know this because I've donated blood a few times,and it says my blood type on the donor card. I know that blood type and personality is big in Japan, but I don't think there's a correlation between blood type and autism.
