Those with O blood type may be at greater risk of depression and intense anxiety. Children with O type are more vulnerable to ADHD.
People with A blood type are prone to obsessive-compulsive disorder and those children, too, are predisposed to ADHD.
Kids with B blood type may be protected from ADHD.
People with the rare AB blood type which is present in less than 10% of the population, have a higher than usual risk of cognitive decline as they age.
This isn’t a done deal. Reduce stress, stop drinking and smoking, eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly to improve the odds of having a healthy brain later on.
Obviously, many factors impact whether or not someone ends up with an illness, but awareness of these influences can help you manage your family’s risk.
