In brief: Confusing question

As long as it is not unhealthy, why must it have health benefits? The average person replaces 1-2% of their blood daily as it wears out, and can easily increase production 3-4 x, easily permitting blood donation every 8 weeks.
Donating is a simple way to give life healing blood to those with greater need.Only healthy donors can provide this material, so donation is a simple way to matter to someone.
