I may have discovered something I haven't seen that anyone else has noticed. The type of Blood found on the Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium of Oviedo, and in the Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano are all of type AB.

That type is rare, occuring in 4% of the population overall -- and Asians bump that number up since AB can be found in ~10% of Asians. In Europe, the type is rarer than 4% (e.g., in Italy, it's 3%). 

Here's the discovery, which I found -- "discovery" in the sense of realizing how it might relate to the Shroud, Sudarium, and Lanciano miracle. My emphasis in red:

Quote:ABO-typing of ancient skeletons from Israel.
Micle S, Kobilyansky E, Nathan M, Arensburg B, Nathan H.


Sixty-eight ancient skeletons, unearthed at Jerusalem and En Gedi and, according to the archeological data belonging to Jewish residents of these places from about 1,600 to 2,000 years ago, were ABO-typed by means of the hemagglutination-inhibition test. The blood groups of 13 skeletons were undiagnosable and the remaining 55 showed the following distribution: 30.91% A-group, 14.54% B-group, 50.91% AB-group and 3.64% O-group. According to these findings, the population to which these skeletons belonged must have had a high frequency of genes IA and IB, and a low occurrence of O blood group and its related IO gene.

The Miracle of Lanciao:
As Charles Coulombe has pointed out, EVERY Eucharistic miracle that has ever been tested is AB+.
Which other Eucharistic miracles have solid science behind them, Jovan? I could maybe expand the Lanciano page...
I'll look through Charles' book, A Catholic Quest for the Holy Grail, which discusses some of them, and I'll message him. I'll get back to you.

I'm not Jovan, but I do know of three that have been scientifically studied.

I hope this helps! I love Eucharistic miracles.
