    Very interesting. I'd heard that certain blood types were more immune to noro than others, but wasn't sure which. Unfortunately for me, I don't know my own blood type! Maybe it's better not to know.

    I have heard that too - blood typing and all. It is nice to think that some of us may be more immune. I don't know if I would treat it as a magic bullet and stop being emet, although that is a nice dream!

    Thanks for sharing the link.

    I've never heard that A was the least likely to catch it, or get sick! I have heard that B provided some immunity. My husband is AB+ and he has only vomited once in the 38 years I've known him. Our kids are both A+ and they've had noro a few times. I'm O+ so good thing I'm not afraid anymore, lol.
