Did you know you lose 3g of salt when donating blood? A biscuit may not be the right snack for everyone post-donation, so be sure to top up your stores after your donation with a bag of pretzels or another savoury snack.
THE BLOOD DONOR Albert Fischer started donating pints of his O-positive when Truman was president, and has continued to do so every 56 days—for 58 years. On a fall morning, TV camera crews and reporters stand at a country club in Long Island waiting for Albert Fischer, to drive up in his car with the license plate O BLOOD. Fischer is being celebrated today for an extraordinary feat: The pint that he's about to donate will bring his lifetime total to 40 gallons of whole blood!!!
