Hemophilia is a blood-clotting disorder that occurs when an individual’s
blood does not clot normally. This tends to happen when the human body is unable to change blood from a liquid to a solid
in order to stop the bleeding. This disease is infact hereditary, and is found
on a resessive trait that is attached to the X-chromosome. Although Hemophilia can affect females, it is more common to occur in males.
Hemophilia can infact be very dangerous, because when you do not pocess the neccessary blood-clotting protein,
(which hemophiliacs do not) you could easily bleed for days on end. When you
cut yourself, natuarlly your body is going to want to heal itself. For a Hemophiliac,
it is very difficult for your body to form a stable clot to heal the wound. A lot of the times, even after your body
has produced a clot, it is sometimes not strong enough, and that is when Hemophiliacs
bleed for long periods of time.
