She clarified that there is no any threat to ones health if one donates blood as enough precautions are taken before blood is taken from a person and in fact it’s a healthy practice as human body keeps on generating fresh blood and if one gives his extra blood to someone in need one will lose nothing but the person who receives will have life. Giving blood means saving life.
