Blood donation and knowing the Science behind it!
Blood is critical in many life-saving situations and that it can help to treat different illness and injures. Blood goes to those having medical emergencies such as accident survivors; individuals undergoing major surgeries such as organ transplants; patients with cancers and blood disorders like leukaemia and lymphomas or severe anaemia; and even new-borns with medical conditions.
For many patients, blood donors are their lifeline.
When you plan to donate blood, it goes a long way to know one’s blood type and how it is suitable to the patient who needs it.
Matter in its simplest form is called an element. Scientists have classified the discovered elements into a table called the Periodic Table. There are already more than 114 elements and counting! Like Hydrogen, Oxygen, Magnesium, Gallium, Rubidium, Yttrium… Certainly no mean feat to know what these elements are, and even more daunting, remembering all by heart.
Daniel Radcliffe (child actor of world famous ‘Harry Potter’ stories) remembers ‘The Elements’ well in a song. He had sung it over a BBC TV show, showing that anyone can learn it too. So can you!
