Type B Negative Blood

B Negative blood is in extremely high demand. Only two percent of the population has this blood type. So rare is this blood type that, in certain cases, you may be someone’s only hope for survival. Although your blood type is rare, its power extends well beyond that two percent. Your red blood cells and platelets, for example, can help patients with five other blood types.
