Could you tell me if there are any medical benefits in donating blood ?
Recently my father (50 years old) went to pakistan for six months and
one day saw a homeopathic practitioner and said he had a pain in his
leg. The guy after examining my father said why don't you try giving
some blood via a leech. After he felt better.

Also I've heard that athletes give blood three or four weeks before an
event supposedly to give them an extra edge . The sport I've heard this
happening in is cycling .
