Some blood types are more susceptible to air pollution, research suggests.

A new study suggests that the risk of air pollution exposure may be higher than usual for a specific group of people. The study’s authors found that a variant ABO gene, commonly found in A, B, and AB blood types, has been connected with increased incidences of cardiac arrest during periods of exposure to airborne pollutants. People with the O blood type were found to be less susceptible to he...
