  • It possibly can, since blood types may influence coagulability
  • Yeah, no, duh, everyone knows this
  • No, there's no way!

      A stroke is an event that damages the brain or destroys brain tissue. Ischemic stroke is the most common type of stroke. Ischemic strokes occur when a blood clot or other obstruction stops blood flow to the brain. The brain cannot get the oxygen required, and brain cells die without a sufficient blood supply. Since the brain controls the rest of the body, damage to it can cause long-term consequences such as paralysis, blindness, memory loss, etc.

      According to a recent study, individuals with type A blood were more likely than type O blood to experience a stroke before the age of 60. Researchers carried out a meta-analysis of a genome-wide study. Data from 48 studies were used to analyze information on 16,730 stroke cases and 599,237 individuals in the non-stroke control group.

      As per the study findings, individuals with type A blood had the highest risk of developing an early stroke. Compared to the control group, individuals who had experienced strokes had type B blood. However, participants with type O blood had a lower risk of stroke, including early onset stroke.

      These findings suggest that blood types may increase the risk of early-onset stroke by increasing vulnerability to thrombosis.
