June 14, is celebrated around the world as the World Blood Donor Day every year. The event, established in 2004, helps raise awareness about the need for safe blood and blood products like platelets. This day is observed to thank all the blood donors worldwide for their voluntary, life-saving gift of blood.
Why should you donate blood?
You may not know this but blood donation by just 1% of the population can meet a nation’s requirements for blood. Blood transfusion can save lives and improves health this is a fact that we all know and acknowledge, but many patients requiring transfusion do not get timely access to safe blood, resulting in preventable death.
You would not wish such a death on our near and dear ones, would you?
This is the reason why healthy, voluntary donors like you and us must donate blood regularly. Voluntary, unpaid blood donors are also the backbone of a country’s blood donor base as they are the safest group of donors with the lowest prevalence of blood borne infections like hepatitis and HIV. Low risk populations are people who do not indulge in high-risk activities like unprotected sex, drug use etc. The World Health Organization’s goal is for all countries to obtain their entire blood supplies through voluntary unpaid donors.
Blood transfusion is needed for:
- Women with complications during pregnancy, like ectopic pregnancies, also called high-risk pregnancies, and hemorrhage before, during or after childbirth
- Anaemic children due to malaria or malnutrition
- People with severe trauma due to accidents and natural disasters
- Complex medical and surgical procedures like for cancer
- Regular blood transfusions for people with conditions such as thalassaemia and sickle cell anemia, a disease where the blood can’t transmit enough oxygen to body cells.
- To make products such as clotting factors for people with haemophilia
- Fresh blood is needed all the time because blood can be stored for only a limited time before use.
Hence, regular blood donations by an optimum number of blood donors who are healthy are required to ensure that safe blood is available whenever and wherever it is needed.
- Indeed, blood is the most precious gift that you can give to another person. It’s a gift of life.
- Your decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several lives. This can happen if your blood is separated into its components like red blood cells, platelets and plasma. These can be used individually for patients with specific conditions like platelets can be used for treating dengue because this viral infection can damage one’s blood platelets.
Need another reason to donate blood?
Well, you can get a number of health benefits when you donate blood. You will receive a mini physical at the time of blood donation to check your:
• Haemoglobin levels
• Blood pressure
• Body temperature
And contrary to belief, your body replaces the blood lost at the time of a donation effortlessly and without any harm to your system. So donate blood regularly and save lives. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Burning Penis Pain - What to Do When It Hurts to Pee?
Ouch! Nothing gets a man's attention faster than the feeling of passing fire at the urinal. Any man who has experienced painful urination knows that it is nothing to be taken lightly. Not only is it a particularly painful predicament, but penis pain on urination could be a sign that medical attention is needed. Read on to learn some possible causes behind this prickly problem, as well as lifestyle tips for keeping the penis healthy and pain free.
Why does it hurt to pee?
Is it an undiagnosed UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)? Probably the most common culprit for painful urination in women, UTI's are less common among men, but they are still a frequent occurrence. A UTI may originate when nasty bacteria make their way up the urethra, leading to an immune system response. A UTI brings with it a frequent urge to urinate - even though only a few drops of urine may be released - and an unpleasant burning sensation. Bumping up liquid intake -- especially cranberry juice, has proven benefits for urinary health -- and getting an antibiotic from a doctor should clear the infection up pretty quickly.
Could Chlamydia be to blame?
An STD can certainly cause pain in the penis; and it often comes with other warning signs, such a sores, lumps, bumps, discharge and fever. In addition to the big C, other sexually transmitted diseases that are commonly associated with penis pain include gonorrhea and herpes. STDs can come with a whole host of other side effects - some serious and some mild - so it is important to get checked out by the doctor any time an STD is suspected. Additionally, it is possible to pass an infection on to a partner even if no symptoms are present; so in addition to always using a condom, men who are sexually active should complete their full regimen of treatment as recommended by their doctor.
Should stones be considered?
Kidney and bladder stones are definitely a potential cause of pain during urination. Not only do they cause burning, but they can also severely restrict the flow of urine! The final insult of kidney or bladder stones is that they very often have to be passed through the body through the urinary tract.
An enlarged or infected prostate is yet another potential cause for pain at the urinal. While a chronically enlarged prostate - medically known as benign prostatic hyperplasia -- may be more common in men of advanced age, virtually all men are susceptible to a short term infection and inflammation of the prostate, also known as prostatitis. Just like stones, conditions that impact the prostate cause slow and painful urination, which is reason enough to seek medical intervention to get things back to normal down there.
Maintaining Penis Health
No matter what caused the pain to originate, one thing is for sure; any man who suffers from painful urination will want it to subside quickly and stay away forever. While it would be ideal if there was a surefire way to prevent penis pain, very few things in life come with a 100% guarantee. However, there are steps a man can take to keep his penis healthy and reduce his chances of serious problems.
- Use a condom: Not only does it decrease the spread of STDs; it also prevents yeast and other bacteria from entering the penis and causing unpleasant infections.
- Answer nature's call: Sometimes a man has to hold it, as when he is stuck in traffic or an important meeting, but as a general rule - the call of nature should be answered as promptly as possible. Holding urine for prolonged periods of time increases the chance of infection.
- Practice good hygiene: Showers are our friends. Cleaning the penis with soap and water eliminates unwanted bacteria, which can cause not only infections, but also unpleasant odors. As an added caution, men should also hop in the shower after working out and after sex, even if it is just for a quick rinse, to eliminate bacteria.
- Use vitamin A: Using a penis health cream that contains vitamin A (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) can eliminate infection and odor causing bacteria reducing the chance of infection. A penis health formula that is applied after every shower can provide added protection, as well as leaving the skin health and supple in appearance.
