Why You Should Donate Blood?

In 2015, 1.83% of Singapore’s residential population donated blood. 62% were male donors and 38% were female donors.

I'm quite surprised that there are more male than female donors.  Maybe it is because women are more susceptible to iron deficiency which will disqualify them from donating.

I read the hardcopy of this magazine and if I remember correctly, each transfusion helps you to lose 650 calories.  Do good and lose calories!  #maituliao
