Health Tip of the Day

Donating Blood

Fewer than 5 percent of Americans who could donate blood actually do so each year, according to the American Association of Blood Banks. The average donor is a college-educated white male, between the ages of 30 and 50, who is married and has an above-average income. About 38,000 units of red blood cells are needed each day in the United States.

Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms. If high blood pressure remains unchecked, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and more. You can stop this silent killer — if you catch it in time.
