“The most obvious benefit is the joy of saving human lives. A single donation can help save three lives.” Then he went on to reveal several self serving reasons that one might consider donating their blood. “When you donate your blood, you get what amounts to a free health checkup. Before the blood can be used it is subjected to a series of tests. These can reveal particular infections or abnormalities that serve as early warning signs for the donor.”
Muller went on to explain that donating blood reduces your risk of heart disease as well as cancer. These are achieved primarily by reducing the amount of iron in your blood. The reduction of excessive iron is thought to help ward off both of these major causes of death. Regular blood donations have also shown to burn calories and aid in weight control.
As if that weren’t enough, everyone who donates will receive a certificate for a $9.95 oil change at Muller Acura.
Muller finished by saying, “I really hope the community embraces this effort so that we collect enough blood for the American Red Cross. They do so much good, I’m committed to helping them achieve their goals.”
