    First of all, I know next to nothing about the general implications of having Rhesus Negative blood, mostly because I can't find anything much on the web. One of the main subjects of internet discussion seems to be whether RH- humans are actually descended from lizards... so maybe the problem is Teflon? :eek: :eek:

    Less creatively, does anyone know whether there are diseases or illnesses that are specific to RH- status?

    I have run into a couple of posts, somewhere or other, that suggest a possibly disproportionate amount of people with ME / CFS / FM have RH- blood. Does anyone out there know much about this?

    Another query I have - how relevant is the use of Rhesus monkeys in testing (which I oppose, incidentally) to people with RH- blood?

    Anyone out there with some possible relevant info on the subject of RH-?

    Thanks for reading

    PS. Sorry if this has been covered before, but if it has I've not managed to find it
