Why Donate Blood - Must Read

There’s no substitute for blood donation and giving blood regularly saves lives. One single donation can be split into three separate parts, helping, saving or improvising the lives of patients. Just three teaspoons of blood can save the life of a premature baby. If you donate blood, you can help in saving lives of many people.

Improves Heart Health

Donating blood improves your overall cardio vascular health. Increased level of iron in the blood raises the chance of heart diseases. Regularly donating blood helps males in particular to reduce the amount of iron in the blood. This can reduce the chance of heart attack by 88%. Additionally, regular blood donation can lower the risk of severe cardio vascular events such as stroke by 33%.

Burns calories

Donating blood on a regular basis can also improve fitness. Donating one pint of blood (450ml) burns 650 calories in donor’s body.

Enhances feeling of well being in elderly people

Many elderly people who are in good health have reported feeling invigorated and re-energized by giving blood on a regular basis

Reduces the risk of cancer

Give blood to help lower your risk of cancer. According to the Miller- keystone blood center, consistent blood donation is associated with lowered risks of cancers, including liver, lung, colon, stomach and throat cancers. Risk levels drop in correlation with how often participants donate blood.

Saves lives

By donating blood, many lives are saved and hope is given to many whose situation may otherwise be hopeless. Blood donors give such patients a second chance of life.

Free health screening done

In addition to all of these benefits, a donor receives a free prior health screening plus mini blood test. There will be an Hb (Haemoglobin) level test as well as a blood pressure and body check. Blood is also tested for some major diseases and the donor is immediately informed in strict confidentiality if any of these tests show positive results.

Bring joy to many

When you donate blood, your help not only the patient whose life may depend on your donation, but also all those who depend on that patient. The entire community will benefit from the spirit of generosity.

Blood donation is service to humankind

By donating blood you help the needy and save precious lives. more

hello this is shahwaz i m having AB+ blood group if u want then call me this no.:-9310069826 i m a healthy donor..... more  
Are there any issues concerning elderly donating blood. I am 62 (A+), and every time I have offered blood, they do not revert! I am healthy, though of course I do take some medications on a regular basis.
Another important issue in the context is to facilitate blood donation. I do not see why I have to take out my car, use my fuel, deal with the traffic headaches, reach there and go around finding what is to be done and where, and then wait indefinitely for the procedures. After all I am donating blood without expectation of any return, except that I would not have to go through any needless hassles. more
