So, how many calories does a body burn to rejuvenate a pint of blood ? ..
According to the Mayo Clinic...QuoteYou burn about 650 calories by donating one pint of blood. http://www.mayoclinic.org/donateblood/know.html650 calories is almost three Mars bars. Blood donation is one pint every three or four months.So if the 650 calorie figure is correct, by becoming a blood donor you can eat about ten extra ten Mars bars per year, (=> 1/5th of a Mars bar per week).
