Want to know what type of blood you have?
You can easily get your blood tested to examine what your own blood type is. I affiliate with an online blood testing vendor – True Health Labs. If you want to save money by avoiding a doctor’s visit (plus a cheaper test price) i’d advice getting your blood tested by them. You can find the Blood Type Test here on True Health Labs Website.
If you don’t want to go get your blood drawn, it’s actually very easy these days to test your blood type yourself! You can buy a cheap kit online ($10) that allows you to find out your blood type in the comfort of your home.
