Wow I have just subbed 10 minutes ago on the recommendation of FightMediocrity and donated blood for the first time last month, this video seems perfect
If you supplement with iron Always do it With vitamin C.
And still people try using heme iron as a reason to avoid plant based diets…
I used to voluntarily donate blood as a student, never thought there would be a reward for that…
I swear one day he's going to find superpowers in veg blood, just wait
People, you don;t need to donate blood or have frequent trips in Romania to date a vampire, just eat plants, iron absorbtion from plant sources is regulated by the body and actually everything is kept in balance so the quantity of iron inside the body does not produce more oxidation (rust) aka free radicals than the body can handle . Or you can eat meat and get sucked.
I wonder if the feel-good psychological effect of donating blood has any effect independent of the effects from the physical loss of blood – it would be easy to test for.
Well, seems like i have to let my vitamins testet, they will take some blood too ^^ (i will test vitamin D and B12)
You didn't really answer the question as to whether vegans should donate blood for the same benefits.
so getting blood can cause cancer? iv received blood. iv also donated
But is it a good idea to donate blood as a vegan/vegetarian, given that these groups already have lower levels of iron? I've been considering donating blood lately, not for health reasons, but just because it seems like the right thing to do if me and my blood are healthy. However, if it means that my relatively lower iron stores (probably, I haven't gotten it tested yet) will be depleted even more, I wonder if my iron levels would get too low.
I'll just start cutting myself like a depressed teenager and I'll be alright.
This was a particularly dense video. I had to re-watch it a few times. Thank you.
Very strange… could this mean that there was some (albeit very misunderstood) truth to bloodletting?
This is pretty amazing
This felt like a cliffhanger, because he never stated whether giving blood only helped animal consumers or vegans as well.
More propaganda from the hidden vampire community. We are on to you ( >_>) But really this is just another great reason to give blood.
Does this mean people with haemochromatosis (iron overload) have a higher risk of cancer?
Uff I always donate, I am 23 and have donated around 13 times, and I was worried that maybe I was hurting my body giving blood, but thought that it was worth it if I was helping people. This is such a relief.
I've been donating for over 10 years. Some years I donate the max allowable 6 times. I became plant based 3 years ago. When I got my blood work done a year after I became plant based, every iron test was low. Dr wanted to blame the plant based diet, but I felt there had to be another reason. I did some googling and found that blood donations can remove high amounts of iron in the blood. And its recommended that frequent donors, which are people who donate more than 3 times a year supplement with iron. I was never told this once in the 10 years I've been donating. Had to look it up. Once I told my Dr how much I donated he recommended I stop and supplement till I get levels higher. Also the finger prick blood test they do before you donate tests hemoglobin levels. They allow anyone to donate that is above 12.5 (US levels). That is below what is consider normal for lab results at the doctors office. Here is a link to American Red Cross about blood donations and iron levelshttp://www.redcrossblood.org/l...There are 3 additional pages, one a FAQ about iron and blood donations- very interesting facts on how much iron is lost per donation and how even with supplementation its hard to get those levels even back to normal
"Bleeding edge technology" LOL!
It sounds like giving blood has a similar effect as refraining from eating meat, i.e. starving the tumors of excess heme iron. I would imagine there would be less of a discrepancy if the subjects were all vegan.
So, UFC fighters will be fine I guess .
Does the doctor have any videos speaking about prion diseases? Prions are proteins in our bodies that misfold/replicate causing diseases after ingestion of infected tissue. Aka a cow that has mad cow disease can infect a human who eats the meat and they then get variant creutzfeldt-jakobs disease which has no cure.. infects the brains and you die. What I'm reading in microbiology is that these infectious Prions maybe the reason for neuronal diseases such as alzheimers, parkinsons, huntingtons, and ALS. Research is ongoing about the connection Prions may have with certain cancers and type 2 diabetes.
I will live for ever! I'm vegan, I do sports, I donate blood, I sleep well, I have high testosteron level – happy days! 🙂Thank you Dr Greger for your hard work bro 🙂
I Have low ferittin levels how can i improve them?
Well I eat shitloads of hibiscus and spinache.
This is speaking about Heme Iron, so donating blood on a plant based diet is probably better for the recipient than it is for yourself.
My blood is busy right where it is.
I think I'll pass.
Don't like blood, needles, knives, doctors, life
I'll happily take death
Doctor Kevorkian was my patron saint
For the first time watching Dr. Gregor's videos I am more confused now than ever about iron.
+NutritionFacts.org These days I donate platelets; any benefits for me?Fantastic video, many thanks.Tomorrow I'll have been Vegetarian for 23 years exactly.Happy Burns Night one and all.🙂
As someone that works for united blood services, PLEASE donate blood if you are an eligible donor! Good for you, good for the community. It's a win-win! #bloodsaveslives
So iron causes cancer?
As a vegan I regularly get 0ver 500% of my RDA of iron. Does this mean I'm more at risk to develop cancer?
If someone gets a blood transfusion from a person with an autoimmune disease while pregnant or under immunosuppressive treatments, can it be a treat (any HLA reaction)?
Orr maybe the "scientists" hacked the results as their steady pay was winding down…!!!"cancer research" being so lucrative as a bottomless pit
I'm spreading the word out to help this guy out he need a surgeon to remove a 400 pound tumor his channel is called persistent Tim check him out
Nice I donate x3 times a year. Only twice last year though as I couldn't make one of the appointments. BOOM good for others and yourself.
"Maybe that influx of iron accelerated the growth of hidden tumors" so does giving blood increase or decrease cancer risk? Not sure why I'm confused. Small explaination would be nice
Hey doc! Can you do a vid on hair loss?..oh wait.. tia
so my Hb was 17 mg/dl 3 years ago. and has been around 15, in the last 2 years (I had 2 ACL Surgeries), am I on higher risk of cancer? 4 ferric ions per Haemoglobin molecule… or is it only free iron? or bound iron ?
This time I am ready cliffhanger, I haven't watched two videos in a row, so come at me brah. I'll just go to the next one like a baus.
I think this guy is a fraud and a complete wako but I agree about this particular point. I'm actually planning on doing it, I just hope I don't get rejected for my low weight.
On the other hand, this is such a moral dilemma for vegans, right? If a vegan donates blood, it will most likely save a non vegan's life, causing animals to keep dying for the saved person to eat.. so not donating blood might be vegans' only legal way to kill a non vegan, their wet dream come true..
Dr. Greger, have you found any studies on the rates of immortality among vegans?
This kind of information will boost the demand and popularity for vampires to start work on their victims. If they get caught, answer..”Perfectly acceptable,legit and hey! I’m doing you a favour”.
Karma confirmed!! LOL
I'm at 6 gallons whole blood donation and counting over the past 30 years. Starting to feel like Dorian Gray. No chronic illness or medications at 61 years of age. The hair on my head is still brown (and still there!). No arthritis to speak of and hearing and balance is excellent. Bloodletting truly is the Fountain of Youth!
Sounds like he's drunk
Blood is desperately needed in the medical field. I donate double red – blood cells or blood platelets on a regular basis. By doing so it gives me a feeling of my altruistic worth.
Blood antigens are an whole other topic. Do a
