Donating blood could help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and boost weight lossIt even burns 650 calories for every pint given.The news could come as welcome boost to British blood banks which use an average of 7,000 units of blood every day

It is thought that the benefits arise from lowering high iron levels.Iron affects how thick and sticky the texture of the blood is. High iron levels causes the blood to be thicker.Raised iron levels also accelerate the oxidisation process of cholesterol

This can affect blood consistency and create increased friction as it travels through blood vessels.As this increases wear and tear to the lining of arteries it could then contribute to cardiovascular disease.Because donating blood removes some of its iron content, it may therefore have a protective benefit if done on a consistent basis by helping thin the blood

According to a study from the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers found that those aged 43 to 61 had fewer heart attacks and strokes when they donated blood every six months

Quote by Aashish.kumar
Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions".
