If Donating Blood Gives You Benefits, Why Are So Few People Doing It?
According to the World Health Organization, blood transfusion is an essential component of health care services and blood donors “provide a unique contribution to the health and survival of others (Towards 100% Voluntary Blood Donation).”

Likewise, it is not found that students who wear uniforms have improved academic achievements. (Brunsma and Rockquemore, 1998; Gentile and Imberman, 2009) Continue reading
