comment Why do people have antibodies against other blood types?
@DQdlM The difference is: normally you will not have antibodies for antigens you have not come in contact with. E.g. when first encountering a specific type of influenza you will start making antibodies against it. This is why vaccination works. But blood antibodies are special: you already have antibodies for blood antigens even if you've never come into contact with other blood.

comment Why do people have antibodies against other blood types?
The only reasonably satisfying exploitation I've ever heard is that human gut flora contains the A and B antigens and thus antibodies are created in a reaction to that. But I've never found satisfying reference material or sources for that explanation.
