I can't say I have ever given blood. Thinking about it, I really don't know why because it is vital for life. Did you know that 1 in 7 hospital patients need blood? However, less than 10% of the population who can give blood do!
Giving blood - is an act of giving life.
The United States has a big population and consumption of blood that boggles the mind. Over 15 million pints of blood are needed every year for transfusions.
As yet, medical research hasn't found the answer to making blood artificially and for that reason it is scarce.
Whether your blood type is A, B or O every drop can make the difference between life and death.
Did you know that back in 2006 Herbalife helped promote the American Red Cross asking distributors, staff, friends of friends and just about everyone to support blood donation through their local communities?
In fact, Herbalife Nutrition donated nearly 850,000 protein bars to 120 Red Cross Blood donation centres across the U.S.
My facts of the day:
- Did you know that each pint of blood contains 30 to 40 grams of protein? (No wonder everyone needed a protein bar after giving blood.)
- 1 pint of blood can save up to three people.
- Less than 10% of those eligible to give blood do.
The benefits of giving blood.
