Hemochromatosis is caused due to excess iron in the body. Excess iron in the body poisons the organs and can lead to cancer or irregular heartbeat or liver cirrhosis. Blood donation helps in reducing the risk of hemochromatosis.

3. Reduce risk of Cancer

Every time you donate blood, the iron levels in the body are maintained at healthy levels. Blood donation reduces iron levels thus reducing the risk of cancer.

4. You produce new blood cells
