    You cannot choose what your blood gets used for no. It would be a logistical nightmare!



    1 unit. Which is 450-500ml.

    You can also donate platelets and bone marrow at most centres.
    So half a litre huh? Thats a lot imo, especially considering Im already dryer than a Vampire.

    As soon as my infected ingrown toenail clears up, I'll be eligible and I'll start.

    I haven't yet, but I'd love to some day, since my blood type is pretty in demand, or so I heard. As far as I know I would be eligible but I haven't had a check up in a while so that remains to be seen.

    I think they recommend the opposite for eating? You need a decent amount of sugar to keep your energy levels up, according to my girlfriend that is!

    I really want to but I'm not allowed because of medical condition/s. I 100% would if I was able to though. It's very important.
