The concept of 'brain dead' is a new concept.

"Brain dead" is not a new concept. It has been around for at least 45 years.

There is no one definition. There is no consensus. "Brain dead" varies in different countries.

It's fine with me if you are willing to donate your organs while you are "brain dead" according to one of the many definitions and according to whatever definition the doctor attending you is using.
