The Rhesus factor, specifically rhesus negative, has been a topic of interest for discussions in medical science for a long time.

Below are some of the interesting facts you may want to know about Rh negative blood type.


Rh Negative Blood Type

1. The Rh negative blood type is not a ‘mutation’.

Rhesus factor, referred to as the Rh factor, is a protein in the human blood.

The term is derived due to the first discovery of the protein substance in the blood of Rhesus monkeys.

The fact that a number of people lack this factor is a puzzling phenomenon that tends to defy the evolution story arising the question on where did they come from?

2. A disadvantage to pregnancy.

In situations where a couple have different rhesus factor blood types, it puts their children at risk.

This happens most especially when the child picks up the rhesus factor from the father that differs from that of the mother’s.

It leads to a build up of antibodies in the mother’s blood that causes it to fight or react to pregnancy of the second child resulting to death.

3. Rh negative blood type is rare.

In reference to whole of the world’s population, only about 15% lack the rhesus factor.

The remaining 85% are Rh positive, making them more favorable.

Lacking Rh factor can lead to problems especially in cases where blood transfusion or organ transplant is needed urgently.

4. More prone to allergies.

People with the Rh negative blood type are more prone to be affected by allergies, especially food allergies.

This results in having them being more picky when it comes to food preferences.

5. Better natural resistance to particular disease.

Studies show that the 15% of humans who lack the rhesus factor are gifted with natural resistance to HIV, small pox and bubonic plague.

By being resistant to these diseases, it means that they are less susceptible to suffer from them as opposed to those with the Rhesus factor.

6. Lack D antigen.

This is a very important factor especially for pregnant women. Blood that lacks the D antigen tends to reject it’s own unborn baby especially if the baby is Rhesus positive.

It is commonly referred to as ‘hemolytic disease’ or death of the unborn.

This is a major disadvantage for people who belongs to the Rh negative blood group.

7. Lack protective antigen.

Rh negative blood type lacks an antigen that perpetuate the release of antibodies in the event of an invasion by viruses and bacteria.

This specific antigen is found on the surface of the erythrocytes exclusively in Rhesus positive blood type individuals.

This explains the weakness in Rhesus negative people against several types of diseases and illnesses.

8. Do better at high altitudes.

Rhesus negative people have a greater oxygen capacity thus are more adaptable to higher altitudes like the mountains.

This seems to explain a story about a tribe in China that dies when relocated to lower altitudes.

Fascinatingly, they do not require the adjustment most would require when moving to higher altitudes.

9. Unknown Origin.

It is assumed that Rhesus negative blood type is specific to group O which is the purest type of blood and the rarest. 

It remains unknown to date where the negative factor came from.

There is a theory that tells it is a product of connected bloodline from prehistoric humans to present day people.

10. Higher occurrence in whites, most noticeably Europeans.

Generally, there are about 40 – 45% of Europeans who belong to the Rh negative group.

There are only about 3% of African people and about 1% of Asian or Native American individuals who belong to the Rh negative group.

  1. Rh- and autoimmune diseases. Interesting.
    I’m O- and had horrible allergies and eczema and other skin problems as a kid, I became a type 1.5 diabetic in 2011 at age 54. Type 1.5 diabetes is basically type 1 diabetes in adults and a positive test of glutamic acid decarboxylase.

    1. Sarah Bragg says:

      Are you saying
      as Rh neg person cannot fight off viruses?

    2. I have reactions to any processed foods so paleo is good for me.

      although I found that were are less susceptable to the Wuhan virus than others on a
      positive note.

    3. I have r h – and i never get sick but have fear of hights and like being by myself

      1. Susan Burg says:

        weird you should mention that. I too have a fear of heights and never get really sick. And prefer to be alone. I am RH-

      2. TRACY L GILLHESPY says:

        Me too how weird!

    4. Im O+ I’m immune to a lot… i was sic like 10times in 30years, eating a lot off sugar products, a lot… don’t have over weight, or any issues with health

  2. Leigh Bickings says:

    Hello ,I’m O- blood type ,when I was pregnant I was told I was RH- and received a shot for it. Is RH-permanent or is it just through pregnancy such as diabetes? Thanks!

    1. Rh- is permanent. Every time you are pregnant, unless the father of the child is also Rh-, you will need to get a shot to protect you from developing antibodies. If you don’t, future children are more likely to not survive. As long as your doctor is aware you are Rh- (and they should ask), it isn’t really a big deal. Just a shot once or twice each pregnancy. (My youngest is 28, so I don’t remember all the details.)
      Both of my kids are Rh+, and it hasn’t been a problem, since the proper treatment was given to me.

      1. I have two sons RH+ and one RH- like me. I had shots during the pregnancy and first two got shots when born but the third didn’t need one because he was RH-. I am generally healthy with viruses but do have T2 diabetes, coronary artery disease, and a fatty liver. All are controlled. Did read that RH- has lower risk with COVID.

        1. Melany Evans says:

          My Dad was O+. He’s deceased. He rarely got sick. He did have Coronary Heart Disease tho. Bad allergies. I’m A+ like my mom but I got his allergies, when tested I was allergic to 74/76 things they tested me for 20 years ago. Last year found out I’m part of the 30% population with accessory spleen(I have 2 spleens), and recently diagnosed with Fatty Liver.

    2. Ginny Bolt says:

      It’s a factor in your DNA and blood so, yes it is permanent. You should receive RhoGAM injections at appox. 28 weeks and within 72 hours of delivery if your baby has a positive Rhesus factor. Being Rh- has been with you since birth and will always be a part of your life. Definitely do some research on it because it can play a big role in many aspects of your world. Best wishes, We got this!!!

    3. RH-permanent, YES it isn’t possible to change blood types.
      GESTATIONAL DIABETES -Gestational diabetes goes away after you give birth. But it can affect your baby’s health, and it raises your risk of getting type 2 diabetes later in life. You can take steps so you and your baby stay healthy.
      I AM RH NEG TYPE 0

    4. It is not a disease or condition .

    5. always gonna be rh negative. It just only becomes life threatening when pregnant or if you were to need a transfusion urgently. I’m rh negative as well

    6. CS Taunton says:

      Your blood type is permanent. You will need to be cautious each time you are pregnant. If your baby is 0- it will be fine, if not you need that RhoGam shot each time to keep your bodies immune system from attacking your unborn child and causing miscarriage.

  3. Jevin Carter says:

    I’m AB- , I guess this is the rarest of all the blood types from what I’ve read over the last few days. The fact that I’m biracial (black/white) makes this phenomenon even more interesting. My father was black and he is A- and my Caucasian mother was B-. Also my grandfather on my dads side was AB- like me. My mother developed Type 1 diabetes at 11 years old. My father other than his high blood pressure that he was diagnosed as a child with seems to be perfectly healthy. I was also diagnosed with hypertension at 14 even though I was not out of shape by any means and generally healthy. It’s also worth noting that the pyramids and the easter island heads where built by the same group of people and this group of people where not Caucasian or European originally. They eventually migrated to what ended up being somewhere in or near Spain and then of course this Rh- blood line trickled down that way. So I find it puzzling that on almost every one of these articles regarding RH- blood types it’s noted that basically if you’re not white you’re related to the RH monkey lol. There’s a ton of 100% European descending people who have the monkey ancestor. Point I’m making is if you do your research this gene came from a group of people out of Africa most likely of Sumerian origin. They where neither black or white and where referred to as “the builders” They migrated eventually towards the nile thus bringing us the pyramids and than north settling in Spain. So once again this phenomenon is not based in European or Caucasian genes. I’d like to point out that I had a sore throat and back pain last week and than tested positive for Covid-19 and was fine with in roughly 18hrs. Maybe there’s some science to be had regarding blood types and covid?

    1. Susan Mann says:

      AB negative is not the rarest. RH null is the golden blood and the rarest. There is something like only 13 people with RH null blood in the entire world.

      1. Peter Goodwin says:

        That’s interesting. Many years ago, there was a world-wide call out for donors when an Australian man who shared my mother’s group required a transfusion. She was group O Rhcde/cde negative, whatever that means. I am O neg with a single Rh cde neg. – a fortunate factor when I had a ruptured spleen and liver in an accident in a rural part of Scotland. The report said I’d lost 3 litres of blood, but there was nothing like the panic over supply. Fortunately, the Australians found a donor within the country and my mother’s wasn’t required.

    2. LOL~NO!! NOT “related to the Rhesus monkey”…..regardless of race/ethnicity…..some nonsense Darwin (a rather strange man w/rather strange “ideas” who also married his first cousin) came up with to push evolution OVER creation! We share the absence of this “antigen” w/that particular monkey, is all. With all due respect, my friend…..Ya might need to do a little more research, J/S…..the highest pop % of “Negs are indeed “Caucasians” ~ w/the highest concentration being in Basque ~ located between Spain & France. It is my understanding, the most recent breakdowns (by race) are from the 1970’s, suggesting the overall % may now be as low as 7-9% worldwide.

  4. I am A-. Luckily I don’t get sick often at all, even when around someone who is. I do have allergies (pollen & dust), and asthma. No food allergies that I know of though, and I love all kinds of food.

    1. Susan Mann says:

      No one should take the vaccine. It will alter your dna.

      1. According to the research I have done, it does not alter DNA.

      2. Tina Gutholm says:

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…conspiracy junkies here too. LOL alter your DNA. OMG HAHA. Thanks for the laugh.

        1. You know the people that want you to look away from the truth. Use the word conspiracy. Being open to others views, ideas and theories without judgement and ego. Is a sign of great intellect.

        2. Renee Sutton says:

          Why do we need a vaccine for a virus that 99.7% recover from? So we can have 99.8%? It’s no conspiracy that vaccines are not necessary .

        3. Eric Bonaparte says:

          What are you laughing for? Did you find out what’s in this serum that is only good for six months while changing your DNA… this virus has a US PATENT expired in 2020. Did you know that? Go ahead ..stab some poison in your body. You are the one that will have your head spinning and mental meltdowns when you learn you have been created by media. You can’t think for yourself, let alone research anything for real truth. Laugh all you want, the joke is on you … we already know it, you will have to learn ..if they let you. Not your fines moment, oh bright one.

    2. Danny Mac says:

      I had coronavirus and I am O- I have had bleeding problems such as hemorrhaging. Why can’t we find out where we come from? I know we see things differently than a lot of people. That is the case with my grandmother and I. We don’t understand the cruelness of people. We feed off of each other’s energy. The more positive energy the better. Also, stay away from alcohol. I am not taking the covid vaccine because I am O- My grandmother had a very bad reaction to it. She is still not better. It is messing with her head. They will force us to take it, but we already know why. I think we know this.. I kind of feel most of us O- people are empathetic and sensitive and know that humanity is being destroyed at the hands of evil. Does anyone else think we are going to be grouped and studied? We need to really start talking to one another to see how much in common we really have. Does anyone else feel the evil energy coming from underground?

      1. I’m o neg and I totally agree!! You’re not alone!!

      2. Kari Badavinac says:

        My family is all RH Neg 4 B neg and 1 O neg. Have not been sick have not had covid. Wondering if we are related to rhehsus monkey or aliens?

      3. Linda Bebar says:

        I’m O- and not taking any stupid vaccine.

      4. Oh, I think that people would rather be told what to think than research the the facts, not on the first two pages of Google. Really, delve into the answers… you will learn that the media has distorted it all since the beginning of its existence.. It is used to influence the masses and persuade with edited TV. Nothing is live and nothing is what you learn on TV. Those wearing masks when they don’t have to are the group in society that can’t be trusted. They will take the side of the most popular and not have your back. Those are the people the enemy wants to influence and will not have your back in the fight for freedom and truth. Where there is conspiracy there is always some truth and cover ups… Every time. Your world is nothing like you think. After all, look how Michelle “Big Mike” fooled you into thinking she was a girl, let alone First Lady… Michael played football for Oregon State. Our tranny
        First woMAN…FACT… so careful when you laugh at the educated ones… we research everything.

  6. I am RH- and I am A-, so it is not exclusively a type O- trait.

  7. Would also like to add, why it is controversial regarding the theory of evolution, RH+ blood has the same traits as monkeys/apes, RH- does not have this connection.

    1. Jamie Martin says:

      maybe us rh- people come from reptiles lol…never know…

  8. I am Rh Negative group B blood with no antibodies. When at school I had a reaction to the scratch test for the BCG jab (TB) so never had to have the jab I was the only one in our school this happened to. at the age of 11 I had yellow jaundice, when I had my four babies I had to have a jab also they did to. When I was 33 I had my gallbladder removed. Between these times I never saw a doctor I was in good health. I then went to the doctor age 73 because I was still having a regular monthly period with no problem until that week it was found that I had cancer in the womb, where did that come from. That was the first time I had seen my doctor for 9 years! I have never had the flu jab because I never get the flu, I am over the cancer had everything removed then they found that the top entrance valve of my heart is strangely enlarge how did that happen? I had that all my life with no trouble even now not affected by it but now take thinners and beta blockers. All these things I have had and no one else in our family have had and I am the only one with my blood group. Apart from that I am in good health and have been told I look a lot younger that 76. I have been reading up information now regarding about should I have the vaccine I have been invited to clinic trails but I’m not brave enough also been told not to have the vaccine until I hear back from my GP. I never thought there was so much to know about blood it’s interesting finding out.

  9. I am RH Negative B and I had to have a shot when I had my son, did not
    have any more children. I use to catch everything, sore throats, flue I would catch
    everything. I have always had stomach issues my entire life, just the past 2 years my stomach has been good. I had so much acid, now it is not as bad but suffered from acid reflux many years but not in the esophagus in my stomach. Yes I am over weight, and yes I have a fib. the doctors told me 3 out of 10 will develop afib, its very common, but he told me my valve or something is large but not to worry and loosing the weight could help. So I am on blood thinners. Had episode with afib, it would happen every 5 years so strange. 4 trips to the emergency room, but with the preventive maintenance so far under control as best, but heart still will beat out of rhythm then go back to normal, I really don’t like it and can’t drink any alcohol, that triggers it. I was so good for 1 year then I had a few bears over the weekend, the heart didn’t like it, so I popped in my mouth I was giving flecinide and it went back to normal rhythm so I do not touch alcohol.

    1. Jamie Martin says:

      I’m Rh- as well and I thought I had Afib because my mom has it but mine was ruled out and my diagnosis was anxiety. I was having heart palpation’s from anxiety and I have skin issues and stomach problems,GURD,Acid reflex. Had 1 baby 26years ago and had to get shots.

  10. Judy Pitolay says:

    very interesting information. I am AB (RH negative). had to have the “shots” when I was pregnant with my son 46 yrs ago. Neither of us have had any problems. I am 70 now, consider myself quite healthy, a few allergies come spring time, that’s about it. My husband is an avid hunter and fisherman – we have a lot of fresh caught fish (mostly pickerel & trout) and a lot of wild meat – moose, elk, deer, etc.

    Neither of us have had the flu (or taken flu shots) and we’ve not been sick in years, not even with a cold.

    we consider ourselves very lucky in that we have maintained a relatively healthy life.

  11. Too many vaxs in my opinion
