quote:Originally posted by fishytailsHi, i hope i don't show myself up too much by asking this, but how does giving blood frequently cause health problems in old age? maybe what I've heard goes as far back as the 'blood letting' thought to cure practically everything in the middle ages (or whenever -history isn't my forte), but i was always under the impression that giving blood did no harm at all, and maybe even some good? I had a bad experience giving blood about a year ago when the nurse punctured almost everything in my arm but the vein, caused me to faint, gave me a huge bruise and loss of use of my arm for a week. so any excuse to keep me from going back again would be welcome!!
