I had my blood work done Monday
6 months for the liver.
All perfect the blood count was all normal.
And my ultrasound of abdomen was all normal too the liver reported normal in every way.
Great.
They also posted my blood group which is b positive. Rare in uk. And related to Asia and India.
Big surprise.
Does this group make any difference to my health ?
I read an article which said it was actually related to long life. In a few studies ?
