      On the one hand, blood banks are desperate for blood donations; on the other hand, they turn healthy people away. I can't believe they haven't figured out how to screen for Creutzfeldt-Jakob.

        but about a year ago I was told I couldn't anymore because my ship stopped in Alexandria Egypt 30 years ago.

        You'd think after all the blood I've given over the years since, they could make the correlation between that and some "new rule" that went into effect in 2011.

        Should I lie about my one day visit to Egypt and save some lives, or just keep my blood?

    •  Me too. I was in the Army in Germany from 1984-87 (0+ / 0-)

      And I can't donate blood because the Red Cross thinks I might harbor mad cow disease.
