Do they still charge the donor $$$ for lab costs and such...back in the 1990's when my blood was untainted I was going to be a bone morrow donor but when I checked with red cross it would have costed me to donate and it was expensive...Is it still the same way now days???
Nope. All free as far as I know. My wife and I provided DNA samples and filled out some forms and that was it. If we match, we go to a hospital, they painfully extract the marrow, and that's it.

I have long thought that rh negative blood type is a mutation caused by living in high altitudes. Look at where this type is most often found. Basques had the Pyrenees. Caucasians had the Caucasus. Berbers had Atlas.

I have a feeling it's not just the O- people, but all the Negative blooded folks.

Same; I was blond as a kid and then my hair went brown (naturally). Now its purple, but its usually blue-black (unnaturally).
My eyes change colour too, tho it seems I have no control over this.
