Help Others—and Your Heart

Now a new study shows
that it may help you live longer, too. Researchers at Dartmouth Medical School found that

who didn't. "It removes excess iron that builds up in the body, which can damage artery walls
over time," says lead author Leo R. Zacharski, M.D. Find a local blood drive at givelife.org.
