Thousands of people have been banned from donating blood because of fears over the human form of BSE.

The ban, announced in the Commons by Health Secretary John Reid, applies to all those who have had blood transfusions since 1980.

It comes three months after Mr Reid revealed that a British man who died from vCJD may have contracted the disease after a transfusion.

Rest of Story

The weird thing is...all blood is tested before being used in transfusions, thats why they fill up 2 test vials up with the xtra blood from the wire.

There is currently not test for vCJD in human blood. This is why its so scary, not much can be done about it.
