Our blood tells us how much sugar is in our bodies, how to calculate the insulin to give ourselves, and lets oxygen flow through our bodies.
Have you ever wondered, "What is blood?"
According to Medilexicon, it is:
"The “circulating tissue” of the body; the fluid and its suspended formed elements that are circulated through the heart, arteries, capillaries, and veins; blood is the means by which 1) oxygen and nutritive materials are transported to the tissues, and 2) carbon dioxide and various metabolic products are removed for excretion. Blood consists of a pale yellow or gray-yellow fluid, plasma, in which are suspended red blood cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes), and platelets."Wow!
Have you ever realized how much blood does for us?
I haven't either!
Have you noticed that blood shows up every where?
Commercials, health journals, test strips have to do with blood.
So, try to be more like blood; it is hardworking.
Moral of Story: I'm pretty sure blood does a lot more work than the average American.
