Meetings, deadlines and rushed meals. Life seems like an endless checklist of things. Most men are so busy that they have no room for anything else. When was the last time you hit the gym or even scheduled a health check-up? Health is a major investment for any individual, more so, in the present day scenario, with hectic work schedules and unhealthy eating patterns. Our stressful and sedentary lifestyles have resulted in an increase in diseases such as hypertension and diabetes, particularly in men.

As many as 34,78,607 units of blood literally went down the drain in India over the last three years, Anupriya Patel Minister of State for Health said while replying to a question in Rajya Sabha. The blood units were discarded as they were found positive for Malaria, Syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. Further the reply noted that blood units had been discarded also because of expiry, especially for platelets which have a short shelf life of 5 days. Another reason for wastage was deterioration during storage in the form of discoloration, haemolysis, and bacterial contamination.

Those conducting large blood donation camps, collecting over 500 units in a day will have to seek permission to depute adequate teams from licensed blood ...
