Your Blood Type Determines the Risk of Being Attacked by Ticks
Scientists from the Check Republic discovered the evidence that ticks may prefer attacking people with a certain blood type. Tick, the blood-sucking parasites, can carry various bacteria, including bugs that cause the Lyme disease.
In the course of study, the researchers dropped a tiny sample of blood from blood types A, B, AB, and O onto a sterile layer of filter paper on a Petri dish in the laboratory. The analysis of the received results showed that the ticks preferred type A blood in the majority of cases — 36% of the tick chose the sample. Type B was found to be least “favorite” — only 15% of the parasite chose the respective samples.
Lead researcher Dr. Alena Zakovska says: “The presented study demonstrated that blood group might be one of the factors determining the feeding preferences of Ixodes ricinus ticks.”
