Benefit of donatingEach donor receives a mini health check that provides a great way to monitor good health. Each mini health check includes: blood pressure check, cholesterol screening, temperature and pulse readings and iron level testing. Donating blood is good for the heart. Recent studies have shown that men who gave blood three times a year reduced their risk of a heart attack by more than 50 percent. Donating blood can only help your diet...it takes off one pound.
