QUESTION: Masters Scientists can’t explain the human Rhesus negative blood – where it came from and when. Some articles say it’s extraterrestrial in heritage some say that it’s a normal mutation like the color of our eyes for example. What is it? ~Mari, Finland
ANSWER: There are a lot of things scientists can’t explain, such as why people have different eye colors, or how skin colorations came into existence. There are many variables in the phenomenon that is humanity.
The Rhesus factor, which is a protein in the blood, is either present (Rh-positive) or not (Rh-negative). It is really not as simple as that, however, as many sub-factors go into the determinations. For instance, a negative may not be vacant of all Rhesus factor but contain an almost insignificant amount of one of the sub- particles.
The importance of the factor comes into play either when a blood transfusion is undertaken between two individuals or in the event of a pregnancy where one parent is predominately considered negative and the other is positive, and the fetus has an opposing factor to that of the mother who is carrying it.
When conflicting blood cells come into contact, they create substances that attack the contrasting factor. During a transfusion this can result in fever, hives, or anaphylaxis. In the case of a fetus it can result in stillbirth, damage to internal organs, or a blood disorder in the baby necessitating a complete blood replacement transfusion.
The presence of these proteins in one’s blood is mostly genetic as it runs within racial categories, being very prevalent in those from the Mediterranean, parts of Europe, and the area around Egypt. Those from Southern Africa and Central and South America have very little incidence.
Your readings have given you two pathways, and we say it is a bit of both. As humans have evolved, intermarried, traveled around the globe, and been affected by environmental factors, their bodies have adapted and changed to match the place they live and their bodily needs.
There were some places on the planet that were visited and populated by beings from other planets. Some of their DNA was mingled with that of humans and then passed on to progeny. One of the largest population areas was in extremely ancient Egypt, before modern archeologists even report people existing, during the building of the Sphinx and some pyramids.
All of this is just by way of historical reference as it doesn’t solve the problems created by this protein. Physicians have figured out ways to deal with it and may even devise a method of removing it from a person in the future.
