O+, looks like a bit of a pattern up there, but probably just a coincidence

>.< Forgot that completely.... So, without finding out the chances between equal no. of peeps from each blood group, things wouldn't be possible to find out which blood group is prone to seizures? :O As the poll would most probably be close to the % availability of each blood group in everyone?

Rh is not a blood type like A,B,AB, and O are. There are two parts to blood types. First the Letter or antigen(A,B,AB,or O) and the second part would be the RH or rhesus factor(whether your blood is positive or negative) so if you are A- like I am then you have an A blood type with an RH negative factor. So for all of you people who are saying your blood type is Rh you are half right but you have a letter A,B,AB,or O too!
Sorry I was super Interested in blood types while I was in high school!
