How do you differentiate between different blood groups?

You must have heard the words of encouragement sometime saying  ' Be positive' or don't " be negative". There you go ! These are two blood groups with one solid difference between them. Bad example? I know.

Your blood type is based on whether or not certain proteins are on your red blood cells. These proteins are called antigens. Your blood type (or blood group) depends on what types your parents passed down to you.

Blood is often grouped according to the ABO blood typing system. The 4 major blood types are:

  1. Type A
  2. Type B
  3. Type AB
  4. Type O
