- Saviors need human blood, one day to raise awareness about donating blood.
- This year’s message is “Donate blood and keep the world beating.”
- Do you know these 5 benefits of donating blood?
Every year June 14 is World Blood Donor Day. According to the World Health Organization, millions of people die each year from donating blood.
The health benefits of donating blood from time to time are as follows:
Reduces the risk of heart disease:
Regular blood donation keeps iron levels in balance, reducing the risk of heart disease. The formation of large amounts of iron in the body can lead to oxidative damage, which plays an important role in accelerating premature aging and heart attack.
Low risk of cancer:
High levels of iron in the body are an invitation to cancer. By donating blood, healthy levels of iron can be maintained in the blood, which reduces the risk of cancer.
To control body weight:
Donating blood helps you lose weight and improves fitness. According to researchers at the University of California, donating 450 ml of blood helps you burn 650 calories from your body. But you should prepare for donating blood only by monitoring your own health.
Prevention of hemochromatosis:
By donating blood, hemochromatosis can be prevented by over-absorbing iron in the body. Regular blood donation lowers iron levels, so it can benefit people with hemochromatosis.
Production of blood cells:
Donating blood stimulates the production of new blood cells. After donating blood, the body’s system works within 48 hours. This allows new blood cells to be produced and all lost red blood cells to regenerate within 30 to 60 days. Therefore, donating blood brings all kinds of positive benefits to the body.
Don’t hesitate any longer, get ready to donate blood to those who need it in times of need. It will benefit you and your recipient alike.
