That's right! if you taste blood, the taste you are tasting is the taste of the element Iron. "Fe" for short.




I used "taste" to many times in that sentence.

ahh.. mine idk wat is my blood type xD! but i have question:

1.) Blood types is for what?
2.) What is blood type's most nice?

sorry about this! ><"



Blood typing has to do with the antigen, or"tag", that each blood cell has on it's surface. It lets your body be able to identify your blood cells as your own, so it does not mistake it for a foreign body and attack it. It's important in medicine because if a person needs a blood transfusion the blood type must match your own or your body will reject the new blood and have a very bad reaction.

For a healthy person there is not a "most nice" blood type, but can become very important if you have a medical issue that requires blood transfusion. The blood types are A, B, AB and O. There are other factors as well, but for simplicity I will stick to these four. People with type O blood are able to donate to any type because this type of cell has no "tag" so the body does not attack it. However, type O individuals can only get type O blood. People with type AB blood are universal recipients, meaning in a blood transfusion they can recieve type A, B, AB and O blood. Type A and type O are the most common types. B is less common than A and O but more common than AB.

To address other commentsI saw, blood type should have nothing to do with taste at all. Blood generally has a metallic taste because it contains iron, which is a component of hemoglobin that helps bind oxygen to the cell. The iron is also the reason that blood is red, since iron is a pigment. There are other factors that may influence taste, like blood sugar and plasma (the part of the blood not composed of red blood cells) sodium levels.

^ Kudos to mrya21 for bringing in that scientific element.


:/ I bite the inside of my mouth a lot and it bleeds. It's got a metal tasty and smells salty. I suppose if it's really different there could be something wrong though.
