Didn't the UK decided to ban ME patients from donating?I moved the thread to the Media Section because it was a press release - it looks OK now.
I guess the US is just very conservative - altho not nearly as conservative as the UK (or Germany or Spain or France, etc. )
The Canadian, Australian and British governments have all banned ME/CFS patients from donating blood. We, the Think Tank panel of ESME, applaud their actions and believe that a similar ban should be issued in all European countries.
EDIT: Sorry, I see that this has already been disccused upon.
