When did you last donate blood in Thailand. Possible heart benefits...

Recommended Posts

According to this guy its good for your heart health to donate blood:

Can anyone rock up to the local govt hospital to donate blood or are there mobile vans like in nanny state countries where one can donate blood?

If you are over 50 forget it. They only accept young blood.

Agreed.

I looked into it as I wanted to donate blood, as I did in the UK.

Not only was I too close to sixty at the time, but I also needed to visit a doctor to request a certificate to say I was healthy, etc, (for which I'd have to pay) and present it to the Red Cross local office to see if they would accept me.

It's not exactly made easy here to help others.

They don't want mine either (I'm O+ so not rare anyway). 

 

I'm too old now, but even when I wasn't I failed the "did you live in the UK during the back-end of the 20th century?" test (mad-cow disease time).

Oh yes, I remember seeing that on the form now you've mentioned it.

Initially I thought it was a question only for females.
