i say donating blood its a good thing much more if you do it willingly and to earn..it will cause you good cause it helps you to clean your blood vessel and replace it with a new one..but i never have tried it cause i have a phobia on a needle..wehehe

I gave my blood for blood donation last month. I think it's a good thing. We can help other people with our blood. I don't get what's you mean with a lot of negative things. But i think you meant the risk of having bad blood. Before we give our blood, usually we are asked for short medical checkup to make sure that we have good blood. As we know that there're alot of diseases infecting via blood. Giving our blood for donation is good for us to knowing that we have healthy blood. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

I try to donate at least once a year. It is easier when your employer has the red cross bus come to your office. Then you can go out and get it done quickly. They usually give you juice and a donut to get your energy level up after you donate.

I have given over 3 gallons of blood. Not all at once of course. But a pint at a time. I have been a regular donor for many years. Currently I am deferred from giving due to my heatlh. I think that giving blood is a wonderful way to help other people and I am glad to have done so.

I donated blood two times so far. I feel it is good in a way that we are of help to the person who requires it and it makes us healthy even. It takes very little time for you to get the blood required by your body back within a day or two or it may be in few hours and for that if you eat stuff like tomatoes it will be done. Yes, one thing is there, you feel a bit week. except for that I don't see any thing negative in donating blood.

Donating blood is good. For one thing we can help other people that is in need of blood. It will regenerate the blood circulation of our body. So if you are really in good condition to donate blood, what are you worrying about? And besides the doctor will first check if you are fit to donate blood.

What negative things you heard about it? Well, blood donating is good. It is a process which you can help other people and yourself. How can it simply help yourself? Here how it works. The blood running thru are veins are dioxygenated or blood without oxygen. The color of this dioxygenated blood is darker than the other one. That is because it is dirty. Thru donating blood the dioxygenated blood will be lessen and new fresh bloods will be produced to make you healthy. Blood donation can get rid of pimples. It can help you to gain weight. And also it can help other people to live. But if you are worried about the condition of your body if you are capable of donating blood, it is ok, because doctors will do some check ups before you donate blood to know if you are capable of this activity..
