“The present study shows for the first time in a large prospective cohort that specific ABO blood groups are associated with an increased type 2 diabetes risk,” Guy Fagherazzi, PhD, of the Center for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health at Gustave Roussy Institute in France, said in a press release.
