Hi All, I was wondering if anyone here gives blood and if they feel better Physically after doing it. My doctor suggests that giving blood could be benefitial because your getting some of the poisons out of your body (contained in the blood you give) and I guess your body has to generate new purer? blood. BTW...I'm not condoneing this....Blood letting (not giving blood to the RED CROSS) was popular for hundred/thousands of years before modern medicine. Might have been useful in certain situations for those Hundred/Thousands of years. The old practive of using Leeches to keep open wounds from infecting is making a comeback in modern medicine. (very effective). Something to think about.
