Blood Type and Cancer

A person's blood type may determine his or her chances of developing pancreatic cancer.

A new study out of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute found people with blood type O appear to have a lower risk of pancreatic cancer compared to people with blood types A, B, or A-B.
That’s based on data from over one hundred thousand people.
Doctors found the incidence of pancreatic cancer was lowest among people with type O blood.
Although small, type B had the highest rate.
The study appears in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
