YouGov’s fact of the day.


Red Blood Cells: Function and Structure

I was taken aback by this fundamentally crucial lack of personal (and potentially life-saving) knowledge.

YouGov asked Brits if they know their blood type

Only 45% of Brits know their blood type, whereas 55% do not.

Only 19% of adults under 25 know their blood type, compared to 55% of the over 65’s

I’m O neg. That’s pretty handy. For pretty much everyone on the planet.

And it’s why I donate, because mine is the ‘Vanilla’ of blood types.

It goes with anyone.
