The origin of Blood Brothers is said to be Middle English during 1350-1400. Depending on where in the World this oath was and is taken to this day, depends on how the ritual is preformed. It is the intertwining of one another’s blood as to make a connection, spiritually. I am wondering if blood type reactions were noted if the “oath” was null. For instance, rh incompatibly…would this “oath” sensitize a rhesus negative individual? Would there be an immune response? Would there be visual agglutination of the blood? Was the “Blood Brother” ritual meant to find a common connection related to blood type?
ANSWER: Yes. The recipients blood type eventually changes to the donor type. That means if you had a blood type of A+ prior to transplant and your donor had a blood type of O, eventually your blood type would become O. I may take several weeks, possibly months for your original blood type to disappear, but eventually it will.

What ever happened to mandatory blood tests in the United States before allowing a marriage? I have researched blood test requirements by state online and it appears that most do not require one at all now.
Looking into past blood test requirements I found out that: In the 1930s & 40s, blood testing to screen for syphilis and or rubella became a prerequisite for obtaining a marriage license in most states.Sexually transmitted diseases were extremely common during that time. Premarital blood tests identified those who were infected and gave them a chance to seek medical treatment before infecting their future spouse. While rubella is not a serious disease for adults, it can be extremely dangerous to an unborn fetus. Premarital testing for rubella was designed to protect the health of a newlywed couple’s unborn children.
This raises the question “Why don’t all states require blood testing still? With increased infection rates of HIV/AIDS, Herpes, etc. this appears to be a healthy provision. It is my understanding that the goal to keep the majority healthy and safe is to prevent further spread of such disease…
a) Kidneys respond to a lower than normal oxygen concentration in the blood by releasing the hormone erythropoietin. b) Erythropoietin travels to the red bone marrow and stimulates an increase in the production of red blood cells (RBCs). c) The red bone marrow manufactures RBCs from stem cells that live inside the marrow. d) RBCs squeeze through blood vessel membranes to enter the circulation. e) The heart and lungs work to supply continuous movement and oxygenation of RBCs. f) Damaged or old RBCs are destroyed primarily by the spleen.
Blood produced from stem cells and can be manufactured as type “O-negative”, which is produced by only 7 % of the World and is suitable for use in up to 98 % of population.
A success story…
“A French doctor has completed the first-ever artificial blood transfusion after extracting stem cells from a patient‘s bone marrow, which were then used to grow the red blood cells under laboratory settings. After five days, 94 to 100 percent of the blood cells remained circulating in the body. After 26 days, 41 to 63 percent remained, which is a normal survival rate for naturally produced blood cells. The cells carried oxygen throughout the patient’s body, just as normal red blood cells would.”
