Blood diseases affecting human well being

By Olaide Osayemi

The blood is living tissue made up of liquid and solids. The liquid part, called PLASMA. This is made of water, salts and protein. Over half of the blood is plasma. The solid part of your blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.

Blood diseases and disorders affect one or more parts of the blood and prevent the blood from doing its job, which is to transport oxygen and carbon dioxide between the lungs and the rest of the body, protecting the body through the white blood cell by destroying invading micro organisms and cancer cells and regulating the water balance by transferring water to and from the tissues.

Many blood diseases and disorders are caused by genes. Other causes include other diseases, side effects of medicines, and a lack of certain nutrients in your diet. Common blood disorders include anemia and bleeding disorders such as hemophilia.
