  Excerpt from "The Complete Blood Type Diet Encyclopedia"
Two basic blood group B population patterns emerged out of the Neolithic revolution in Asia: an agrarian, relatively sedentary population located in the south and east, and the wandering nomadic societies of the north and west.
The incidence of blood group B was probably very high in these Steppe dwellers, so the appearance of group AB in Europe is probably the result of the intermingling of these Eastern invaders with their European hosts.
Blood group AB is rarely found in European graves prior to 900 A.D. Studies of prehistoric grave exhumations in Hungary indicate a distinct lack of this blood group into the Langobard age (fifth to seventh century A.D.).

 EldonCard Blood Type Kit - 915001
Blood typing is determined by the type of antigens or markers that are on the surface of red blood cells (either "A" or "B") and if there are antibodies to a portion of the blood type known as the Rh factor (either "positive" or "negative").
Blood type is inherited from and dependent upon, the blood type of an individual's parents.
In the case of a transfusion, a person's blood type needs to be compatible with the donor's blood type or an allergic-type reaction can occur resulting from the immune system of the recipient attacking the incompatible donor blood cells as invading organisms.

 blood type diet
There is no reasonable scientific basis for the claim that blood type should determine one's diet, though Peter claims to have collected "over 1,000 scientific articles on blood types and their correlations to disease, biochemistry, nutrition, and anthropology."* Even so, he's never done a controlled study on blood type diets.
Since most people are unaware of their blood types, let alone what foods are "evolutionarily inappropriate" for them to eat, it is reasonable to assume that on most days most people eat the "wrong foods" for their blood type (e.g., Type O eating wheat, Type A eating meat, etc.).
Since people in blood group B have B antigens and carry anti-A in their plasma, type A blood should not be given to those in Group B, and vice versa.

 Blood Types
If the red blood cell had neither molecule, that blood was called type O. If two different blood types are mixed together, the blood cells may begin to clump together in the blood vessels, causing a potentially fatal situation.
A person with type O blood can receive blood from a person with type O. Because of these patterns, a person with type O blood is said to be a universal donor.
A person with type AB blood is said to be a universal receiver.

 Veg.ca - The "Blood Type Diet": Fact or Fiction?
According to the blood type diet theory, people with Type A blood (39% of the population) are best off as vegetarians, while people with Type O (46% of the population) are natural born meat eaters.
Type B's (11% of the population) are somewhere in the middle.
However, to convince me that blood type is the key determining factor in the diet-colitis link, D’Adamo would have to present solid evidence that wheat-induced colon dysfunction is a condition peculiar to (or significantly more common in) people with Type O blood.

 MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Blood typing
What type you have depends on whether or not there are certain proteins, called antigens, on the red blood cells or if there are antibodies to these substances.
The liquid part of your blood without cells (serum) is mixed with blood that is known to be type A and Type B. Persons with Type A blood have anti-B antibodies, and those with Type B blood have anti-A antibodies.
Blood typing is also done to tell whether or not you have a substance called Rh factor on the surface of your red blood cells If you have this substance, you are considered Rh+ (positive).

 What are Blood Types?
People who have an AA genotype are said to have type A blood because the agglutinogen on their red blood cells has the enzyme activity associated with the A allele.
In the case of blood type, both the AA and AO genotypes cause individuals to display the A blood type phenotype.
The frequency with which blood types are observed is determined by the frequency with which the three alleles of the ABO gene are found in different parts of the world (allele frequency).

 Blood Type Test - [Medical Test]
Blood type tests are done before a person gets a blood transfusion and to check a pregnant woman's blood type.
Blood type may also be done to see if two people are likely to be blood relatives.
Although "universal donor" and "universal recipient" types may be used to classify blood in an emergency, blood type tests are always done to prevent transfusion reactions.

 CIGNA - Blood Type Test
Blood type may be done to check the identity of birth parents.
For example, in a paternity case, if the blood types of a mother and her child are checked against blood types of the possible fathers, the real father can sometimes be found by the blood type match.
However, blood type is more useful in proving that a man is not the father than it is in proving that he is the father.

 Blood Types — FactMonster.com
Human blood is grouped into four types: A, B, AB, and O. Each letter refers to a kind of antigen, or protein, on the surface of red blood cells.
In a blood transfusion, a patient must receive a blood type that is compatible with his or her own blood type—that is, the donated blood must be accepted by the patient's own blood.
Type O– blood is considered the “universal donor” because it can be donated to people of any blood type.

 Human Blood: ABO Blood Types
However, if B type blood is injected into their systems, anti-B antibodies in their plasma will recognize it as alien and burst or agglutinate the introduced red cells in order to cleanse the blood of alien protein.
Despite the fact that the blood types of children are solely determined by inheritance from their parents, paternity in the U.S. and many other nations can no longer be legally established based on conventional blood typing.
For instance, individuals with type A blood are at a somewhat higher risk of contracting smallpox and developing cancer of the esophagus, pancreas, and stomach.

 Blood Types Tutorial
A father who is blood type AB could pass either an A or a B allele to his son or daughter.
The following Blood Type Calculator lets you determine the *possible* blood type of a child, given the blood types of the two biological parents or the *possible* blood types of one biological parent, given the blood types of the child and the other biological parent.
We emphasize "possible" because, in most cases, blood typing is not conclusive when attempting to determine, include or exclude an individual as the parent of an offspring.

 Blood Groups, Blood Typing and Blood Transfusions
If you belong to the blood group 0 (null), you have neither A or B antigens on the surface of your red blood cells but you have both A and B antibodies in your blood plasma.
The B antibodies in the A+ blood bind the antigens in the B+ blood and agglutination occurs.
The agglutination indicates that the blood has reacted with a certain antibody and therefore is not compatible with blood containing that kind of antibody.

If the red blood cell had neither molecule, that blood was called type O. If two different blood types are mixed together, the blood cells may begin to clump together in the blood vessels, causing a potentially fatal situation.
A person with type A blood can receive blood from a person with type A or type O. A person with type B blood can receive blood from a person with type B or type O. A person with type AB blood can receive blood from anyone.
A person with type O blood can receive blood from a person with type O. Because of these patterns, a person with type O blood is said to be a universal donor.
