I'm no expert but in my readings, I have never come across any relationship. Out of curiosity, are blood groups related to anything medically speaking??... or is referring to blood groups, kind of an old paradigm?
I mean medically - speaking.
I never came across any relationship in any reading either. Sort of heard things and wondered...
EDIT: well, there is also this sentence in the link above:
"The new research aims to develop a simple, inexpensive blood test that will predict which soldiers are most likely to get altitude sickness."
2nd EDIT: at 2nd thought, it can't be that. Soldiers would already know their blood group.
