The benefits of donating blood

There are things that are really valued when it comes to giving, such as money, time and blood.

In our country, more than 60 percent of people are able to donate blood but unfortunately, less than four percent of people donate.

Not only are you able to save three to four lives with your donation as blood donations are needed every three seconds but you are able to improve your own health.

Did you know that donating blood will help reduce symptoms such as an irregular heartbeat, muscle weakness, hardening of arteries, accelerated cholesterol oxidation, decreased libido and enlarged liver. It has been discovered that regular blood donors are 88 percent less likely to suffer a heart attack. This is due to the iron levels that have gone down after the donation.
