Blood is life or as Bill would say " my magic is just a little different from yours"

“Blood is life.” I can’t even tell you how many times I have read that in various vampire novels. Picture it – you’ve got the wise and ancient vampire spouting out his long thought provoking monologue and, as if on cue, he tosses in that one line we know so well, “blood is life.” But what does that even mean? Well let’s take a look at the blood itself.

First off, without blood we simply can’t exist… obviously. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to every part of our body. It is 90 percent plasma, which itself is 55 percent water. The other 45 percent consists of amino acids, hormones, proteins, glucose and a handful of other much-needed antibodies that protect our body. Then you have that other 10 percent of blood that isn’t plasma, that part is the red blood cells that transport oxygen and white blood cells that are vital to our immune system. On top of that there are also platelets that clot the blood after an injury, you know, so you don’t bleed to death from a small paper cut.
