Totally awesome!!

And men who donate blood have a 30% reduced risk of heart disease compared to those who do not. The difference is attributed to reduced levels of iron following a blood donation.

Not to disparage the generosity of those who give blood, but that "study" sounds specious at best. A much more likely explanation is that people who give blood are more aware of health issues to begin with, and thus are less likely to smoke or overeat.
