Why You Should Donate Blood

I try to donate blood at least twice a year. While it saves lives and helps those who might need it, i had a friend who is a doctor who gave me a simple analogy which stuck in my head.

The reason you service your car every 3-4 months is so that you can remove the engine oil which lubricates your can mechanics to new oil so that it runs smoothly. If you didn’t change your car oil, it collects all sorts of dirt and eventually causes damage to your engine which will ultimate cause your car to fail.

Yes it extremely layman but the analogy made perfect sense to me and felt that by donating blood, it gives my body the opportunity to create new blood cells which could only be good? Im no doctor so i wouldnt understand the technicalities and how the body works.
