      You can identify your blood type through a very simple blood test. There are many different blood types A, B, 0 and their combinations, have a look here: http://www.northernohio.redcross.org/info/bloodtype.html. Almost 40% of the population has O+ blood. To identify your blood type you need to arrange a visit with the haematology unit of a hospital and go and provide a blood sample from your antecubital vein (the vein that runs down the inside of your arm).
