    Summary: 
    People have always feared and respected blood. Ancient civilizations couldn't perform religious rituals without the revered liquid. Scientists only recently began to understand this fascinating fluid: how its microscopic components nourish the entire body, why simple transfusions don't always work, and that bloodletting likely killed people who otherwise would have lived. But back before people understood what blood really was, they had to weave their own explanations.
