Advantages and Disadvantages of Donating Blood


Who Can NOT Donate Blood?

These people are often suffering from cardiovascular diseases, severe pulmonary diseases such as asthma, stroke, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, etc. Moreover, people with a history of infectious diseases such as hepatitis B, C, or AIDS, and substance use are also among those prohibited from blood donation. These people should never donate blood to preserve their own health and blood recipient’ health. They can actively participate in this humanitarian move and share its moral value by encouraging their family members and friends to donate blood.

Please Tell the Truth Before Donating Blood

Before donating blood, it is better to provide the physician at transfusion center with all the truth and everything that can affect the process of taking and using your blood. Rest assured that your information will never be disclosed.

If you are one of those people with high-risk sexual and social behaviors, make sure that you tell the truth, and choose the option "do not use" in the special form. If you have not committed any high-risk behaviors in the last 12 months prior to donation, you can choose the option "use " and enter your blood into the cycle of human health.
