  • Donating blood is unhealthy for my body as everyone has a limited amount of blood...
  • That is UNTRUE!
  • However, that is a MISCONCEPTION!
  • An average adult has ~12 pints of blood in the human body.
  • A+
  • In fact, each time you donate blood, only 1 pint (~473ml) of blood is drawn.
  • Blood Bag Containing 1 Pint of Blood
  • In the human body, red blood cells are constantly renewed by the bone marrow after 120 days.
  • Donating just 1 pint of blood out of 12 CONSTANTLY RENEWABLE pints of blood will make a NEGLIGIBLE DIFFERENCE to your body!
  • This means that the formation of blood is a CONSTANT PROCESS.
