Red blood cells are the most prevalent cell in our bloodstream. They can carry oxygen throughout the body, and without them we would not be able to survive. So why don’t they pop when we get cut or injured? The reason is because of a protein called hemoglobin. Hemoglobin has an iron molecule at its center which binds with oxygen and carries it through the body so that every organ gets enough supply. If red blood cells popped, then there would be no hemoglobin left to transport any more oxygen!
Blog post title: Why Don’t Red Blood Cells Pop in the Bloodstream?
Description: why don’t red blood cells pop in the bloodstream. Hemoglobin binds with oxygen and carries it through the body so that every organ gets enough supply. If red blood cells popped, then there would be no hemoglobin left to transport any more oxygen!
This post discusses the question of why red blood cells don’t pop when they are flowing in a person’s bloodstream. After all, with so many collisions among these cells and other structures, it seems like an inevitable occurrence. The answer lies in the cell membrane that separates each cell from its surroundings. This is one tough barrier – as you might imagine, after years of evolution to protect against environmental threats such as bacteria or viruses. It also helps maintain a stable internal environment for transporting oxygen throughout your body via hemoglobin molecules attached to every single red blood cell membrane! Even if some guy punches you really hard (ahem) on the nose while wearing boxing gloves dipped in sugar water… those little sweeties won’t break their membranes because there are no holes in them.
This article is a question that has been answered by the discovery of red blood cells and their membrane. The answer to this question lies in the cell membranes’ ability to protect against environmental threats, maintain stable internal environment for oxygen transportation, as well as being puncture-proof with no holes on it!
The next sentence should be: “Even if some guy punches you really hard (ahem) on the nose while wearing boxing gloves dipped in sugar water…”

you won’t bleed because your blood cells have a membrane that is tough enough not to pop! In fact, red cells are so strong they can even withstand being jostled around inside of our body for many years; when it’s time for an old cell to die off, the membrane tears itself apart instead of letting anything else do the job!
The next sentence should be: “Some people may think that this means there’s no need to worry about getting sick.”
This is true up until a
