tiff - people with hep a or hep b antibodies cant donate blood - people who just visited certain areas of the world cant donate blood - people that just lived with someone with hep c must wait 1 year to have blood tested before being eligible to donate - any IV drug user - past or present - even if it was just one time - cant donate blood - and now any homosexual male who has EVER had sex with another male cant donate blood - what next - people that know someone that has an infectious disease cant donate blood - lol - i know its for everybodys protection but they have gone overboard and are even discriminatory in their practices --- id find a better "reason" to not say cured - lololol - you know i love ya tiff - good article BTW
