Blood Donation

Hello readers,
Its time to update again..
and this time is about the blood donation days ago
it feels good to help other and for being a "hero"
because not everyone will donate their blood
and this is my fourth

While "walking" through the net,
I found an article about blood donation 
and here it is:

Reduce the chance of heart diseases

It has been observed that increase in blood iron level increases the chance of heart disease. Iron is involved in the oxidation of cholesterol and this process is believed to be detrimental for the arteries. Increases blood iron level favors this process of cholesterol oxidation and thus leads to heart disease. Regular blood donation helps especially males in loosing iron on regular basis. It helps in reducing the chance of heart attack to one third.

Burns calories

One can diet or remain fit by donating blood regularly. One pint of blood (450 ml) when donated burns 650 calories in donor’s body

Enhance the production of new Red Blood Cells

As the blood is withdrawn from the donors body there is decrease in blood cells. To replenish it, immediately new cells are produced by marrow and this way blood gets refreshed. Therefore donating blood helps in stimulating generation of new blood cells.

Invigorated feeling in elderly people

It has been mentioned in various sites though not proved that elderly people in good health have reported feeling invigorated or reenergized by giving blood on a regular basis.

Burns calories, reduce the chance to get heart diseases... it is a good point in my situation :)
and after all the fourth point is true indeed, 
after donating, the whole body will feel lighter and it is very refreshing 

anyway here is the picture  :)
