Rhoi gwaed

At the risk of being controversial...

Just got back from giving blood.  This is something I have been doing on a regular basis for a long time.  Now the main purpose in giving blood is to help other people to live.  I also happen to believe that many of the problems facing the world today are ultimately due to the exponential population growth the world has experienced and that in the long run (if not the short run as well) the world would be a better place with many fewer people.  So should I keep giving blood?

No - giving blood saves lives, and the issue in your area is de-population if anything.

Didn't realise you were posting again on this blog - I was clearing out some old "favourite" links and clicked on this - pleasant surprise!
Hope you're doing well,Jess.
All the best

Oh yeah, out here where I live there's certainly not too many people, and yes, that's who the blood I'm giving is helping, but I guess I was thinking about it in a more global context...
