What are the health differences between Rh Negatives and Rh Positives?

This month, a revised version of our last study has been published by Plos One.

Rhesus-positive and Rhesus-negative persons differ in the presence-absence of highly immunogenic RhD protein on the erythrocyte membrane. The biological function of the RhD molecule is unknown. Its structure suggests that the molecular complex with RhD protein transports NH3 or CO2 molecules across the erythrocyte cell membrane. Some data indicate that RhD positive and RhD negative subjects differ in their tolerance to certain biological factors, including, Toxoplasma infection, aging and fatique. Present cross sectional study performed on 3,130 subjects) showed that Rhesus negative subjects differed in many indices of their health status, including incidences of many disorders. Rhesus negative subjects reported to have more frequent allergic, digestive, heart, hematological, immunity, mental health, and neurological problems. On the population level, a Rhesus-negativity-associated burden could be compensated for, for example, by the heterozygote advantage, but for Rhesus negative subjects this burden represents a serious problem.

Is there a Basque-Jewish-Rh Negative connection?

The answer is “yes”. And the more I am looking at genetic history, the more obvious it becomes.
On the paternal side:
Haplogroups J1c1 and J2a were 15% around 5,000 years ago amongst the Basques.
Those are known as the Jewish markers, deriving from the Sumerian haplogroup J.
It comes to no surprise, that on the female side of Ashkenazi Jews, the haplogroup K indicates that all 1.7 Million Ashkenazi Jews come from one single female ancestor.
(Which of course is unique, but no surprise considering Jewishness is being passed through the mother).
And just as the further back in time we go in the Basque region haplogroup J becoming more and more frequent, so does the Jewish K on the female side:

Other studies reveal Bedouin groups being closely related to the Cohanim Jews. And the Bedouins are high in rh negative frequencies as well.

10 Health Tips for Rh Negative People

Now that it´s proven that rh negative people suffer from general disadvantages concerning overall health, here is some advice on how you may live around that by taking care of yourself and protecting yourself from the external impact life may have on you.
Please feel free to share your own experiences, questions and thoughts in the comment section below.

10 Health Tips for Rh Negative People

1) Avoid too many carbohydrates

consuming carbs

Our ancestors consumed around 1/3rd carbs, 1/3rd fat and 1/3rd carbs, yet it is recommended we consume as low as 10 percent protein and up to 65 percent carbs. Whatever the recommendations are, we all know that a lot of times advice officially given is being revoked a few years later, so my advice: Listen to your instinct.
Don´t eat out of boredom and don´t let your tastebuds be fooled by artificial flavors.
Eat what you crave.

2) Know that smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol might affect you more

rh negative blood and alcohol

Our research has indicated that alcohol and smoking cigarettes affect rh negative people more than rh positives. So once again, the key to staying healthy is to never assume that whatever doesn´t impact other people visibly may not be as bad for you either.
If you are a smoker and crave some nicotine, try to listen to your body as it will lead towards quitting. Once you smoke out of boredom or think you need to have a substance to help you through a stressful time, you are doomed to make it a lifestyle.
Drinking in moderation is fine. But when it comes to being a solution to deal with issues or allowing a social situation to intoxicate yourself when in reality you don´t even crave it, you are going against the inner voice and silencing your intuition and your health will pay the price.

3) Avoid stress at any cost

stress and blood types

As a general rule of being overly sensitive by society´s standards:
Whatever affects people in general, affects you even more.
So the key is not to “get tougher”, but be conscious in terms of avoiding whatever it is that is negative.

4) Find time away from other people


Can´t be yourself with others? Then be BY YOURSELF!

5) Develop a sleep pattern that is right for you

As people with blood type A are likely to have increased levels of stress, insomnia may be a result of that.
Again: The key to having a healthy sleep pattern just like having a healthy pattern in general is to listen to your body.

Are you tired when you have to work or take care of things while not being able to sleep when it is time to sleep and there is nothing to do?

There are two approaches which may work:

a) Be forceful and demand that you are able to do what you need when you need it and have a life where you are able to take naps when your nature demands it.

b) Do you best to develop a pattern that helps deal with the life you live.
If you are not able to sleep at night, lay down anyways. Your body will get rest, so it´s not a waste. Then the next day around sleep time, you are likely going to fall asleep easier and before you know it, a good pattern arises.

6) Spend time in nature

7) Rediscover your passions

One of the issues most adults experience is that they lack motivation and it shows in lifestyles. A lot of people have completely lost the drive that they once had and the reason is all too often adapting to a life that seems to help them get by while missing out on doing the things that have once excited them.
If you are one of those people, remember who you once were and what made you happy … then find a way to do that again. And most of all: Get rid of people who try to keep you from doing it.
Because you are you. And nobody else can be you for you. And if someone comes into your life without being accept you in everything that makes you you, then why would you waste your time trying to adapt your own life to make you suitable for them, if they are not willing to do the same for you?

8) Physical activities

You don´t have to be a weightlifter or long-distance runner in order to be healthy. But looking at your passions and nature´s benefits, you may want to think what it is that can make you feel better in terms of giving your body the exercise it´s designed to participate in.

9) Do not view prescription drugs as candy

Do you need medicine? Then take it.
Do you want to feel better?
It is advisable not to look at prescription drugs as something recreational to the point where anytime you don´t feel perfect, you take something to give you a physical or mental boost.
Just as we are generally sensitive to everything else, side-effects of anything are included in that.

10) Be comfortable in your own clothing


Do you dress to impress?
What materials are your clothes made of?

Just like you may react badly to foods with chemicals, your body breathes the chemicals of synthetic clothing.
Choose what you feel well in!

Anything I´ve forgotten?

Our study concludes: Rh negatives are disadvantaged in overall health

For the first time ever, evidence has been provided that being rh negative means having a disadvantage when it comes to overall health.
I want to thank everyone who has participated in our study.

How Healthy Is Your Blood Type?

The following compilation of data has been backed by scientific studies.

rh negative blood type health

  • Please note:
    Some of the studies involve a small amount of subjects being examined, so draw your own conclusions knowing that there is a lot more research needed to be done.

  • How Healthy Is Your Blood Type?

    People with Blood Type O


    The latest research into blood types shows that having group O blood can lower your risk of heart attacks.
    People with blood type O negative also have the lowest risk of developing diabetes.


    A study of more than 560 women undertaking fertility treatment found that those with blood type O were up to twice as likely to have a lower egg count and poorer egg quality, which could affect the chances of conceiving.

    People with group O have a greater risk of peptic ulcers.

    Type O people may be more vulnerable to a bacterium that can cause peptic ulcers, Helicobacter pylori.

    There are also reports that statistically speaking people with blood types O and B are more likely to get murdered than people with blood types A and AB.

    People with Blood Type A


    Women with blood group A seemed to be better protected against their egg counts falling over time.


    Because certain blood types are more likely to co-occur with varying levels of hormones in the body, physicians commonly tailor their exercise recommendations to the patient’s type. People with type A blood, for example, are more likely to have higher levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, in their body. So, stress-reducing exercises, like Tai Chi and yoga, may be more beneficial at cutting that tension than running or weightlifting alone.

    When the adrenal gland dumps more and more cortisol into the blood, people’s stress response grows more acute. People with type A blood may find themselves getting anxious more quickly and having a harder time letting troubles roll off their back.

    In a study of OCD sufferers done in 1983, Blood Type A was shown to be associated with a higher incidence of OCD over other types, in addition to a higher incidence of hysteria.

    People with Blood Type B


    Lower risk for diseases listed that people with other ABO blood groups are most prone to.


    A study at Harvard University found that women with AB or B group blood have a raised risk of developing ovarian cancer.

    Other research has found that people with type AB and B blood have a much higher risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

    There are also reports that statistically speaking people with blood types O and B are more likely to get murdered than people with blood types A and AB.

    People with blood type B positive run the highest risk of developing diabetes.

    People with Blood Type AB


    Lower risk for diseases listed that people with other ABO blood groups are most prone to.


    A study at Harvard University found that women with AB or B group blood have a raised risk of developing ovarian cancer.

    Other research has found that people with type AB and B blood have a much higher risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

    There are also fears that AB blood may double or even treble the risk of pregnant mothers suffering from the potentially lethal blood pressure condition pre-eclampsia.

    A 2012 study from Harvard University found people with non-O blood also happen to have an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. But those with type AB blood were the most at-risk overall, demonstrating a 23 percent greater chance of suffering from heart disease than type O subjects.

    A recent study found people with type AB blood were 82 percent more likely to experience difficulties with memory recall, language, and attention than people with other types.

    People with Rhesus Negative Blood Factor


    Less likely to predisposition to chikungunya

    Higher protection against HIV/AIDS


    Stronger tendencies for allergies

    Rh Negative Voices: Terry Lee Wilson

    Terry Lee Wilson has been a part of the rh negative community for many years. She is O negative and I am happy to have had the opportunity to ask her a few questions:


    1) Hi, Terry. Thank you very much for this interview. When did you first find out about your blood type, when did you gain interest in the rh negative blood factor and what keeps you motivated in terms of upgrading your research?

    I have always known that I was O negative, as both of my parents are O negative.

    As soon as age allowed I started donating blood and I noticed that they were very “nice” to me because I was O negative.

    I did not know at the time that O negative was the universal donor but about 20 years ago I became more conscious of my blood type being rarer.

    About 15 years ago I joined several online negative blood type sites.

    About ten years ago I was really studying O negatives and I was having a spiritual awakening at the same time.

    I have tapered off over the last 5 years in my research as I haven’t seen anything coming out that I consider “new”.

    2) Out of all the things you have learned researching the rh negative blood factor, which discovery stands out in terms of opening your eyes the widest?

    I believe that negatives each have coding in their DNA that is not in positive blood types.

    I don’t like implying that negatives are elite, but we are different.

    And I do feel since O negative is the oldest blood type, that our DNA coding may have the original blueprint for humanity in it.

    3) What is your most passionate area of interest?

    Things that even science can not understand or measure.

    4) What are you hoping to prove or debunk in the future?

    I don’t have any feelings one way or the other on this but I do think that things could certainly get interesting.

    5) Out of all the theories and information that have come your way, which make the least sense, which do you consider credible and what would you like to see more information on?

    I am greatly opposed to the theory that negative blood types come from Neanderthals! We are much more divine than that and existed before Neanderthals! 😎

    6) Have you ever taken a full DNA test? If so, what were the results and do you believe there has ever been a group of people in the past which was 100 percent rh negative and what sort of pattern set do you see continued in today´s society?

    I have not.

    During my “spiritual awakening” period I had a lot of information “come” to me in ways that would be considered less than understandable.

    And I don’t feel that it is time to reveal or discuss that information.

    7) A lot of new rh negative people are coming on this blog to read information about our blood type. What message would you like to send to them in order to help them let go of what they have learned in order to emerge into a group of people who are “like them” and what advice would you give to them in terms of where to continue their research?

    For a ten year period I was like a sponge. I read everything. Some things resonated for me, others I thought were lies.

    Learn to trust your instinct, because as an O negative I feel it is my greatest asset.

    Thank you very much, Terry!
