It is true. Biotechnology today can glean amazing amounts of data from any of our biological parts. On any given day we can find news articles detailing the discovery of a link of some item to a person or process theretofore considered unimaginable because we were able to extract DNA and analyze it in ways yet unprecedented. Similarly, different biological samples reveal various physiological information, equally important and impactful, that scientists can use to surmise particular concerns or expectations.
Our urine and our feces, derivatives or by-products of our bodies’ digestive and elimination tracts, give us clues about how well these systems function with what we intake. They can indicate excessive nutritive consumption or deprivation of essentials. Our saliva and the cells just inside of the walls of our mouth cheeks carry information about our chromosomes and how they relate to our parents and our siblings and on through several generations of relatives. Analysis of tooth pulp has helped resolve many missing persons cases. Yet and still, there remains a plethora of data unique to the report of blood analyses. Here are four reasons why you should thank your medical professionals at a full-service clinical research organization for the opportunity to test your blood.
In the event of some tragedy or medical emergency, knowing your blood type will help ensure proper replacement in case of surgery requirements or excessive blood loss. Likewise, having that information on file will allow you to immediately respond to donate blood should your local blood bank or hospital indicate that they are experiencing a supply shortage of that type of blood.
Blood is our life force. It delivers oxygen and required nutritional substances to every body part and physiological system. Analysis of our blood lets professionals advise us of any imbalances of what we eat and how our bodies function given what we ingest. Intricate laboratory tools can assess whether certain indicators point to a problem with our choices or complications with our bodies’ ability to process the foods and liquids we eat.
In like fashion, the results of hematological analyses can help us gain perspective of any risk of serious health problems such as diabetes, plaque build-up in our arteries, exposure to tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases for those who are sexually active or who have had blood transfusions from a possibly compromised source. Catching these concerns early on in their development can mean the difference between longevity of life and early death.
Finally, an in-depth study of our blood samples helps reveal the risks of diseases borne of our lineage and parentage. Such knowledge assists us in determining whether it is an acceptable idea to marry a particular individual if children are to be included. As an example, today’s family can design a child inside the womb and can also prepare in advance of delivery for any possible supports systems like caregiver respite and autism treatment centers.
