(ORDO NEWS) — A huge number of people are faced with cardiovascular diseases. They are the cause of death for many patients.
Experts conducted a new study and found out what is the relationship between the risk of heart pathologies and blood type.
Scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health in the course of a study found that carriers of blood types 2 and 3 are more likely to experience coronary heart disease than others.
The chances of developing pathology are much higher than in people with the first group. If we talk about other problems with the heart, then the highest risks are present in carriers with the rarest, 4th blood group.
It is impossible to change the blood type, but the studies carried out and their results will allow physicians to better understand which patients should be monitored more closely.
Experts note that if a person knows that he is at risk of experiencing heart disease, he will be able to make every effort to avoid this. You can lead a healthy lifestyle, eat right, exercise and give up bad habits.
Additional studies have shown that the second blood type is also much more likely to encounter stomach cancer. At the same time, the owners of the first group are less prone to this disease.
Experts suggest that H. Pylori infection, which is predominantly found in carriers of the second blood group, may become the cause of the development of the disease.
The bacterium lives, as a rule, in the stomach, as well as in the duodenum. In addition, the infection can provoke the development of an inflammatory process in the gastrointestinal tract and ulcers.
In turn, carriers of the fourth blood group are most often faced with memory problems. The body of people with the second group at the same time produces significantly more cortisol (the stress hormone) than everyone else.
It is also necessary to pay attention to the fact that each individual nation has a different ratio of carriers of one or another blood group.
