How many pints of blood are there in the human body?

10 pints

Not too many people know that the average adult has about 10 pints of blood in his body.  Needless to say, most of the cases 1 pint is given during a donation.  It is widely known the fact that blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history and mini-physical, donation and refreshments.  Keep in mind that the actual blood donation typically takes less than 10-12 minutes.  The donated blood can save so many lives.  Specialists consider that a healthy donor may donate red blood cells every 56 days, or double red cells every 112 days.
