Blood is Life

In this millennial age, people tend to move in the direction of their thoughts. Society demands for labor and we see life as something that is tough. We perceive it hard that we overlook who we are; we fail to recall those people we cherish and appreciate them until it is too late. We even forget that we have something inside of us that keeps us living and should be taken care of. The oxygen transmitter, fluid of life, essential as much as the heart, substantial as much as the brain, and none could stanch its unending flow – our BLOOD.

Blood is an important fluid which is necessary in delivering oxygen all throughout our body. It extracts and transports metabolic wastes such as nitrogen compound, H2O, and carbon dioxide. Blood deficiency is fatal to humans. It may cause you to look pale, blur your vision, and dizziness. You may even get chest pain, irregular heartbeat, and headache. If these irregularities happen, you are experiencing ANEMIA!

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), anemia is a condition that happens when there is a deficiency of Red Blood Cells (RBC) in the body. The blood is in the shade of red due to the abundance of RBC in it. The red pigment cell carries oxygen all around the body as the heart pumps a beat. The lesser the RBC in the blood, the lesser the transporter of oxygen, and this will result to a pale and yellowish skin, fatigue, cold hands and feet, headache, and irregular heartbeat which are the symptoms of anemia.
