I Give Blood, Will You?

I was finally able to donate blood on last Monday. Lepas iftar terus p HUSM *ecece semangat!* Blood donation is often considered as a benevolent act. But actually it has noteworthy health benefits to the donor as well. I list out 2 advantages of donating blood, hehe ada banyak lagi sebenarnya tapi tak sempat nak tulis semua. Ask Mr Google for more info ea :)

1. The exalted feeling of saving someone's life. 
If we donate the little excess blood in our body, it could save someone's life without creating any problem for us. Instead it would help to alleviate some major health problems like heart diseases. Blood donation is an excellent way to get rid of excess iron accumulated in our body due to its overconsumption. Excess iron in the body can stimulate the formation of free radicals which are responsible for causing damage to body cells and tissues. Free radicals are also associated with many diseases like heart diseases and cancer. 

2. Burns the extra calories and reduces your cholesterol level. 
After donating blood, the count of blood cells decreases in our body, which stimulates the bone marrow to produce new red blood cells in order to replenish the loss. So, it stimulates the production of new blood cells and refreshes the system. 

Kalau tak silap, there are no major disadvantages of donating blood except that sometimes you might experience a drop in blood pressure, mild nausea or dizziness for a short while. But if you compare the health benefits and mental satisfaction that comes from saving a life, you will feel that benefits of this act of charity is not only restricted to the recipient, but also helps the donor immensely. 

Mesti ramai nak tanya kan, sakit tak? Seriously, I don't feel sakit gilaaa :)) Tak tipu punya so kalau nak tau sakit tu macam mana, give a try. Kalau kat HUSM nie, you can get a free injection for Hepatitis B immunization if you already donate twice. So maghi la deh derma darah ssini :)

p/s- Tak post pun pasal intro about myself due to my err so-called penyakit nyanyuk. I missed my turn to post last week hehe. In short, I'm Gluck Yusof currently studying the art of healing so mainly I'll write about health here. Boleh topup ilmu kesihatan kan. My blog is here tapi tulis merapu-rapu jea :) Selamat Hari Raya everyone! Have a blast one ya ;p

kadang-kadang.. topik health ni bile ade, ramai yg malas baca. tapi bile ade yg sakit mesti mula la info/cerita pengalaman orang lain.

posting pasal health may not be the most famous topic, but it saves lives too.
