"It is (ME/CFS) like some great constricting snake that denies its victims the final convulsion." Llewellyn King

"A CFS patient feels the same or worse than congestive heart failure. The same or worse than late stage AIDS." Nancy Klimas: View video here.

"A CFS patient feels every day significantly the same as an AIDS patient feels two months before death." Dr. Mark Loveless, AIDS and CFS researcher, in a statement to congress on CFS Awareness day, May 12th, 1995.

Canadian Blood Service now Bans CFS Patients from Donating Blood

Virus leads Canadian blood service to ban certain donors

Canadians = smart. They learned their lesson the hard way:

Tainted Blood Scandal

You know how the U.K. addresses the potential blood XMRV issue? Their new policy states that if an ME patient walks in to donate blood, the nurse will ask "How are you feeling today?" and if the donor says ok! (which probability = zero), then they can donate blood. Yeah, I know right?

There is a new potential serology test for XMRV in the US:

Novel XMRV retrovirus diagnostic test developed
Based upon what happened with HIV, I predict that the serology test will be performed by the corporate private blood providers Before the public is notified of the blood safety concerns. 1) This will calm the general public to know blood products are now 'safe', but seriously, it will give the blood providers time to empty their infected inventories to third world countries. Just what Bayer did. Here's the NY Times article:

Isn't it wonderful when blood safety turns into big business?
