Nagpur: The sight of blood causes anxiety, alarm, fright and sometimes even fainting. But without blood there would be no transport of oxygen, regulation of temperature, or metabolism of our body. The blood plays the most vital role in our immune system, and supplies the tissues of our body with the nutrients they need. Blood is the most important bodily fluid we humans possess.
We would be incapable of running without blood. Blood is the sole component responsible for so many important operational functions taking place within our body. The reason the sight of it can cause so much distress, however, is because blood is supposed to stay inside of us — seeing blood means something is wrong.
