    I just read on this Dutch website that Norway has now also banned ME/CFS patients from donating blood:
    http://www.hetalternatief.org/XMRV Noorwegen Bloedbanken 2010 785.htm

    A letter was sent by the government to bloodbanks that states that the relationship between XMRV and ME/CFS is not clear at the moment. It's also stating though that sick people should not donate blood and that therefore ME/CFS patients should not donate blood.

    So officially this ban is not about XMRV... :angel:
