There are several myths attached to blood donation. However, very few people are aware of the advantages of blood donation. The most interesting of these is not even the fact that it helps save lives, but the fact that it is beneficial for the donor as well! While blood donation is beneficial for the donor’s health, it can also be harmful if one is not prepared for it. Following are 4 key categories of food that a donor should consume before donating blood,
Citric fruits - Citric fruits are rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C, enhances the iron absorption ability of blood. This is extremely helpful for any blood donor. Hence eating citric fruits or consuming their juice is always recommended before going in for a donation. You will often see orange juice being offered to donors who are feeling weak before they donate blood. Some examples of citric fruits include orange, kiwi, lemons, pineapple, berries, and melons.
Food items rich in iron - One of the few risks of blood donation is the donor’s body becoming anaemic or deficient in iron. Hence, consuming food items that’ll raise your iron levels before you donate blood is a good idea. Non-heme and heme are the two kinds of iron present in food normally. The first is a plant-based iron and is thus present in vegetarian diets. The latter is present in meat and thus, a non-vegetarian diet. Absorption of heme iron is easier than non-heme. Hence, if you are a non-vegetarian, consume more iron-rich meats, while vegetarians are recommended to have more vegetables such as leafy spinach or broccoli is recommended to raise iron levels.
A balanced meal with low fat - high-fat content in blood hampers the tests for an infection that are run on donors before accepting their blood. Hence you mustn’t have a high fat, heavy meal before you go to donate blood. Consume a low-fat meal that is well balanced. You can have low-fat milk and cereals or toast. You can also include fruits and vegetables suggested earlier. Avoid fried dishes or carbohydrate-rich items.
Liquid diet - Becoming dehydrated is also a side effect of blood donation. Hence, donors are usually asked to have one or two cups of water before the blood is extracted. Drinking juice or other healthy liquids is always recommended. However, one should avoid coffee, tea, and other caffeinated products.
An eco-friendly lifestyle is important not just to save the planet, but also to save your own life. Protecting your environment indirectly enables you to elongate your life span. Breathing in better air, living in a cleaner atmosphere, eating better food, drinking purer water - all ensure a healthier body. Moreover, the improved aesthetics of a clean environment has positive psychological effects on your brain! Protecting your environment is of utmost importance in ensuring your good health. Following are 5 key health benefits of having an eco-friendly lifestyle,
Better quality food - the quality of your environment directly affects the quality of food it produces - the same food that you consume! An eco-friendly lifestyle entails the consumption of more organic food which allows more nutrition and fewer pesticides or chemicals to enter your body. Hence, one becomes less exposed to carcinogenic compounds and other diseases causing or immunity hampering chemicals. Moreover, when one is producing their own vegetables, they end up consuming more seasonal items, which ensures a better diet.
Better air quality - A breath of fresh air is often used to describe one’s favourite thing about the hills or forest or countryside. The very phrase makes one feel more refreshed. City air has multiple pollutants even in the absence of smog, that can cause diseases. Fresh or pure air not only contains more oxygen but also lacks harmful pollutants and microparticles that adversely affect one’s health. Hence, an environment-friendly lifestyle allows one to improve the quality of the air they breathe and thus, avoid life-threatening diseases.
Better quality water - an improved environment ensures the supply of cleaner water, allowing one to consume its minerals while avoiding its pollutants. Cholera, diarrhoea, typhoid are just a few waterborne diseases that are transmitted via unclean drinking water.
Increased physical activity - An eco-friendly human would automatically engage in more physical activity, as they’d attempt to choose walking or cycling over driving or using public transports whenever possible. Increased physical activity is directly correlated to one’s health and fitness.
Psychological impact - the feeling that comes with saving the planet is sometimes enough to give one a sense of purpose. This can help individuals beat depression or excessive self-pitying. Additionally, the aesthetic results of one’s eco-friendly actions, automatically makes one happier.
Improving the condition of our environment not only improves our own health but also helps us ensure that our next generation can live healthy lives as well!
