    It looks like the A and B blood types are ancient enough that they have homologues in chimps; Group O is post-hominin breakoff from the chimpanzees. At least 2 Neanderthals have the genetic deletion for O group blood. >50% of the early Europeans had Group O; >50% of the ancient Stepps population were Rh neg; the Basques are an anomaly, as per usual.

    Neanderthals also had red hair, but whilst I liked to tease my red-headed friends about this, I had to stop because: (1) the mutation for red hair in modern humans is different from the one in Neanderthals (ie we re-invented it), (2) I discovered that I am 3% Neanderthal.

    There is a pretty good article here: http://mathii.github.io/2017/09/21/bl....

      Talking about re-invention in nature. Anthropological evidence says that A's were the first blood type but died off, The O factor residing in all blood types, naturally took over and is the prevalent blood type today...somewhere around 60%. Then...A type blood re-emerged followed by B type during our nomadic days and as a result of different foods and viruses exposed to. The last blood type, AB evolved last as As and Bs got it on. AB is only about 2500 years old and it is said that the shroud of Turin has AB blood stains on it.
      Middle easterners and Germany were mainly Bs, Italy and western Europe were mostly As...including Sweden etc of which is My heritage.

        Not quite. Group O blood results from a genetic deletion that removes the precursor of the A and B antigen - so no A or B can be produced.

        AB blood is just a statistical outcome of having both A and B people in a breeding population. B blood type is pretty rare here in the US - less than 10%. Functionally, we are a population that is about half A and half O. I know this well, because part of my job was crossmatching blood for emergency transfusions; I worked in a hospital for 17 years.

        I have not heard about A blood group disappearing and then being dying off. Thank you for a topic to research.

          O's would still fight off an invading blood type A or B from what I understand from Dr Dadamo's blood type medicine, wouldn't that suggest an A and B antigen?...It's been a while Jan, I used to know this stuff cold, but haven't really discussed it in a long time.

          The info I got was from eat right 4 your type and Live right 4 your type...I would suggest the Live right book... (I think, it's been a while)- Has all the info and background the eat right book has, plus secreator status, exercise for each blood type, etc.
          I've followed his diet suggestion for 20+ years and it changed my life. Wish I had the info before they killed my hyper thyroid...all I needed was to change my diet.
          His book, Genotype is a great informative read as well.
          See: http://right4yourtype.com

          I have to laugh at the greenies trying to stop red meat eating...if they only knew. O's NEED clean red meat, it's like a medicine to us. A's are the vegetarians in our society, they should not eat red meat unless they are laplanders...it's amazing how everyone gets it wrong.

          Many years of strong scientific evidence.

          Ever hear the saying: One mans food might be another mans poison. (never could find out who in history said that first).

      JLC, my oldest child is 8%! And my blood type is A negative. My son's is AB negative. OOps wrong type for Neanderthal? Blew that theory didn't we? We probably came from a different Galaxy!

    Hmmm. Never heard of such a thing. I guess I must be part alien since I had a little red in my blonde hair before it started to turn gray around 48 and then white around 60. Also have O negative blood. Blue eyes, not green so 2 out of 3? Red Cross likes my blood because it seems to lack any of the usual viruses they test for. Except for a few bouts of bronchitis, the last one about 15 years ago, I haven't had a cold in about 50 years. It doesn't mean I'm free of any physical maladies, it's just the usual viral/germ infection isn't one of them - so far, knock on wood.

    My mom had black haie and green eyes, I have dark brown with red highlights, not negative blood however. I was born the year of the alien landing in Roswell, and lived there at one time, always wondered. I am allergic to so may Earth foods, but am quite resistant to viruses. When things go bad, I tell my husband that I am waiting for the "mother ship to retrieve me." I have read several sources which claim there are people part alien and part human. I am waiting for more information. I realy would like to know if the are conservatives or liberals.

    The whole confusion thing is because of massive reverse evolution. Somehow many of our leaders and world figures never had to do much of anything to survive, consequently that survival of the fittest thing got lost along the way. Interesting enough, many of our species wish to emulate the idle rich and famous. Go figure??

    I am red headed and an unusual thing happened as I aged. My eyes changed from green to blue. I have told my family and friends that I believe redheads are transplants from another planet since I was 12 years old. I asked my parents if they were indeed my parents when I was 12. It was at 12 years of age that I realized how very much unlike others I was. I truly believe we are a separate race. Recent research is discovering very real differences is redheads DNA. I am A+ blood type. I may just visualize the world differently than others and my appearance may just be substantially different, but I suggest that it's possible redheads are a mixture of a different race or species. My entire adult life I've joked about my life on earth being a dirty trick and when my ship comes, they are all going to be laughing real hard. Of course I know that many people feel this way! I'm guessing that in time, science will discover some substantial differences that justify my gut feelings.

      In my extended family of aunts uncles grandparents , parents , siblings and cousins totaling 72 people only myself and one female cousin have red hair. When I was young my family of eight would joke that I was the milkman’s . It was a few years before I knew what they were joking about. My wife says that my eyes change color like a chameleon if I wear a green or blue or gray shirt. She also calls me her handsome man so I would not trust her vision.

        I just looked at my eyes this morning and I was shocked to see that they were green once again! May I ask if you have done a DNA test and if so, what nationalities you are?

    I used to be a red head Now I'm an earthling. And, my eyes are blue. I dated a firey red head many years ago. Now, when I see a real red head I go into this trance...haha...

    Interesting to note, while learning about blood type medicine, I ran across some information on the negative RH factor. Seems science has no clue how, why or where it came from because no life on earth would try to kill the unborn within itself, RH negative is rare and does not mix well with RH positive. Oh course the conversation turns to aliens from other planets and that may very well be; but still we have no proof. Somewhere on youtube was good video on RH negative, but it's been 15 years of better since I viewed it.

    I am a rare genotype of O positive, (green eyed) and being almost a clone of my Dad, I always assumed that he was O positive as well until I ran into his blood donor card in his personal effects. Seems he was, A Negative!, not to mention he was born with white hair and blue eyes. Shocker!

    So, like you, are we decedents of aliens???

      I'm not an expert, but this doesn't really make sense to me "RH negative is rare and does not mix well with RH positive."

      15% of the population (the last stat I've seen) is a minority, of course, but I wouldn't consider it rare. Also, RH Negative "O" blood is considered "Universal Donor," so how does this "not mix well" with Positive blood?

      I am not trying to argue, OUC, merely asking for clarification if you have it. :-)

      I have no red hair nor green eyes, but my blood type is O- so I suppose that makes me 1/3 alien. My kids (both O+) have accused me of that for years! :-)

        I commented somewhere else about all this; apologies if it didn’t end up I the right place. Cruise ship internet is definitely squirrelly, but I’ll take it!

        Laughing.
        The results of, say, A dad Rh negative and a mom Rh positive (which was the case with me) harmful effects tends to escape the first born but there after causes miscarages and birth defects as was the case with my family.
        Just as the body fights against another invading blood type it also tries to kill an opposing Rh factor in the womb as well.
        I don't think it would be safe to put Rh positive blood into an Rh negative person. I never heard of that being tried nor considered safe.
        If I get the chance, I'll check into that.

          Well, that is correct as far as it goes. There’s a remedy for that, though, in the Rhogam injection, which must be taken within 72 hours of a birth of a RH-positive child. This protects the life of the NEXT child to be conceived.

          Actually, the concern is with a RH-Negative MOTHER and a child who was sired by a RH-positive father, who is more likely than not himself (the child) going to be positive.

          The Negative mother gets the antibodies during the birth of the Positive child, and they are waiting there for the next Positive child so they can kill this interloper.....I experienced this myself and hate to think of what I would have missed out on with the likely death of my second child. (I got the shots, of course.)

          As a result, however, I now need to be tested for Hep-C because even though I never took an illicit drug, didn’t sleep around a lot and never HAD a needle, much less shared it, the blood products in the early 70s were never tested.

      Actualy olduglycarl (I like your name), An RH negative woman is okay with an RH negative man, it is only if she has children with an RH positive man that problems occur. Something about titers getting confused. She can have a Rhogam shot after giving birth but then she may not be able to give her child a blood transfer if he or she needs one! Go figure.

      Little off on that O positive, which I also have:
      AB-negative (.6 percent)
      B-negative (1.5 percent)
      AB-positive (3.4 percent)
      A-negative (6.3 percent)
      O-negative (6.6 percent)
      B-positive (8.5 percent)
      A-positive (35.7 percent)
      O-positive (37.4 percent)

    My eye color went from dark brown as a young child, to hazel as a middle aged adult, to green as a senior citizen, so what happened? There are peculiarities in all genotypes, no aliens necessary.

    Examination of early cromagnon skeletons show that their brain capacity was, on average, greater than current humans. What happened? Evolution does strange things, or were they the "pure" breed of humans planted by aliens? Have fun pondering.
