Give Blood

I found out some very interesting information today while giving blood. First, let me share the percentage breakdown of blood types in the United States:

O Positive 38%
A Positive 34%
B Positive 9%
O Negative 7%
A Negative 6%
AB Positive 3%
B Negative 2%
AB Negative 1%

I found out my blood type, O Positive, (still with me Ashcroft?) can be administered to anyone with a "Positive" blood type. In addition if you have an O Negative blood type your blood can be administered to anyone. Apparently Type O is the universal blood type but I didn't realize how universal it was.

My point? Give blood!
