   Tip #50 – When Every Drop Counts

Donating your blood can actually do you more good than anyone else who might receive it. Excess iron is thought to be a leading contributor to cancer and heart attacks. An excessive level of iron in your body is one of the most potent ways that your body oxidizes, or prematurely ages (think of your body as an apple, and the iron causing the discoloration when the fruit is exposed to air).

Nearly all adult men carry excess iron, as so do many postmenopausal women. These two groups of people may benefit from regularly donating their blood (one to six times per year, depending on their iron overload status). Women who still have periods have lower iron levels, as iron is lost during monthly menstruation.
