they can give blood. I cannot, nor can my husband or daughter. We lived in Ireland in the late 80’s (mad cow) and in Sub Saharan Africa in the same time frame. So our blood is a no-go, but they take the queers blood.
In the US, the current guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is to defer any male donor who has had sex with another man (MSM) in the past year. This has been so since December 2015.
Me too. The USA doesnt want my blood ever and Im a universal donor. When I get back to Europe I will donate blood. It is the most ridiculous banning ever; I was nowhere near Britain, didnt eat beef from there.
Because of political pressures insanity--not because of medical wisdom.
