Donating blood helps your cardiovascular health overall. Increased iron content in the blood increases the risk of heart disease. Regular blood donation, especially for men, helps to lower the quantity of iron in the blood. This may cut the risk of a heart attack by 88%. Furthermore, frequent blood donation may reduce the incidence of serious cardiovascular events like stroke by 33%.
JCI Vizag Steel City, in collaboration with Sri Satya Sai Seva Samithi, organized the year's first blood donation camp at Ukkunagaram.
