Why Donate Blood

Why Donate Blood?

Donating blood not only benefit the person who receive the blood but also improve the healthiness of the donor. While provide blood there will be magnificent feeling resulting from giving something essential to someone who needs it, the benefits of donating blood may extend far beyond this to having a constructive impact on the donor’s health.

Some of the advantages for donating blood are:

  • Ingestion of quantities of iron beyond a certain limit can promote formation of free radicals in the body. Free radicals can cause cellular changes which can disrupt normal cell function and may increase the risk of certain diseases such as heart disease or cancer. This is more likely to be a problem for men and post menopausal women since women of child bearing age shed excess iron through regular menstrual cycles. If a person happens to be a red meat eater, the risk for iron overload will be high.
  • When the blood will be donated there will be a decrease in the blood cells. To reload, immediately new cells produced by marrow and this way blood gets re-energized. By donating blood body get generated new blood cells.
  • By donating blood a person will clinically screened i.e. HB level, blood pressure & body weight. The donated blood is tested for five major diseases i.e. Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, Syphilis and Malaria. As a result of any illness donor immediately informed. Thus by donating blood a person can be screened periodically.
  • Blood donation removes some of the excess iron which may cause free radical formation in the body. Studies have shown that men who donate blood on a regular basis have a lower risk of heart disease.
