FDA Looking For SUPER BLOOD DONORS
[link to www.msnbc.msn.com]

Next time a national disaster strikes, whether itís an earthquake or a pandemic, dedicated blood donors could be tapped ó quite literally ó to give again within as little as two days, under a plan being considered by federal health officials.

The Food and Drug Administration is asking advice from blood experts this week about whether itís a good idea to dramatically shrink the intervals between blood donations in the event of emergencies.

Under proposals being considered by the Blood Products Advisory Committee, donors would be allowed to reduce the interval from the normal eight weeks down to four weeks without a doctorís approval, and down to as little as 48 hours with a medical release.

I saw some signs today from the American Red Cross, saying that there is an Emergency blood shortage, and I thought to myself what is the emergency? But if you give blood you get free ice cream, blood for ice cream? When I lived in Maryland they paid you $25.00 a pint.

The Red Cross called me twice today to come donate on Thurs. They claim they are short of all blood types. Why?

 Quoting: Awakened


Just like after 9-11 and they said that they needed blood urgently for the survivors, but come to find out they took the blood and sold it to labs for a profit and at the time the CEO resigned because she took a 7 figure bonus from the profits.

They want my blood they will have to pay for it.

I hear you and understand what you're saying but I choose to donate anyway. Most of it does go to people who need it and I feel that the benefit I recieve from donating means it's a win for everyone.

Re: FDA Looking For SUPER BLOOD DONORS
They are LOOKING for O negative/universal donors for their LARGER, very recent 'donations', as time is growing SHORT for the elite/politicians/parasites to RETREAT to their underground bases. They have the food, fuel, slaves,facilities ready; they just need a large supply of blood for any emergencies.

Anybody for the 'sucker list' ???

Re: FDA Looking For SUPER BLOOD DONORS
While i enjoy donating blood, and am on the "call list" for blood, platetes and plasma, Im a universal donor with double the normal platetes, i would not give because someone told me to. I do it, because i like feeling like i might be helping someone or saving their life. As a matter of fact, im going to set up an appointment to go donate, some times this week.

Gave blood once, in Marine Corp bootcamp, for a day off, a peanut butter sandwich and a steak. Will never give to the vampires again!

Not that the FDA cares what I think, during times of national crisis that has been no shortage of blood donors. It is at "quiet" times that there is a shortage.

I am sure the FDA knows this.

Yes. At present the recommended time between donations is 8 weeks for a single unit.

Your hemaglobin is checked at the time of donation to make sure that you have enough blood to share.

 Quoting: Awakened


cuz they want to storehouse as much of it as they can down in their underground d.um.b.s before the cataclysms both natural and planned forthcoming

it's not for current emergencies nor victims

it's for themselves, as usual at our expense

that's as good a supposition as any
