Negative Commandment #89

Sefer Ha’mitzvos Ha’Katzar (The concise book of mitzvos)
By the Chofetz Chaim

This book lists the Torah mitzvos that can be observed today

Second Section – the Negative Commandments

89. It is a negative commandment "do not eat any blood"

As it states in Vayikra (Leviticus) 7:26, "You shall not eat any blood... from a bird or animal." Undomesticated animals are included in this law. One who willingly eats an olive size amount of blood, receives Kares (cut off from his people). If it is done in error, he brings a sin offering. Blood of a human is forbidden, according to the law of the Sages, but only if it left a person's body. Blood of fish and kosher locust is permitted.

This applies in all places and at all times, for men and for women.
