8 REASONS YOU MAY NEED TO DONATE BLOOD!
REDUCE IRON OVERLOAD. One in every 200 people in the US is affected by hemochromatosis, a serious chronic condition in which the body absorbs too much iron in the blood. Giving blood regularly is an effective way to reduce extra iron levels.
REPLENISH/RENEW YOUR BLOOD CELLS. When you donate blood, your body goes into overdrive producing new blood cells.
LOWER RISK OF HEART ATTACK. Blood donors are 88% less likely to have a heart attack than those who don’t donate, according to the American Journal of Epidemiology.
LOWER YOUR CANCER RISK. People who donate blood regularly show lower rates of cancer than their non-donor peers, according to a report published in the Journal of the National Cancer Association.
BURN CALORIES. You can burn about 650 calories every time you donate a pint, according to the University of California-San Diego. That’s about the same as jumping rope for 50 minutes.
KEEP YOUR LIVER HEALTHY. Your liver suffers when your blood is overloaded with iron. (see 1st item)
REVEAL POTENTIAL HEALTH ISSUES. Blood donors are screened for a host of ailments including anemia, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, Zika Virus and others.
