I am A+ and a breast and skin cancer survivor.  Have been vegetarian since I was about 10 years old.  That was a long, long time ago.

I got these facts from the Am. Red Cross.  If anyone is good at statistics, I wonder how our percentages compare to the normal population. 

O positive is the most common blood type. Not all ethnic groups have the same mix of these blood types. Hispanic people, for example, have a relatively high number of O?s, while Asian people have a relatively high number of B?s. The mix of the different blood types in the U.S. population is:

         Caucasians                  African American                 Hispanic                    Asian
O +         37%                               47%                               53%                       39%
O -            8%                                 4%                                 4%                         1%
A +         33%                                24%                               29%                       27%
A -            7%                                  2%                                 2%                         0.5%
B +           9%                                 18%                                9%                        25%
B -            2%                                   1%                                1%                          0.4%
AB +         3%                                   4%                                2%                          7%
AB -          1%                                   0.3%                             0.2%                       0.1%

 
Some patients require a closer blood match than that provided by the ABO positive/negative blood typing. For example, sometimes if the donor and recipient are from the same ethnic background the chance of a reaction can be reduced. That?s why an African-American blood donation may be the best hope for the needs of patients with sickle cell disease, 98 percent of whom are of African-American descent.
