    it's not the military service, it is where the military service occured. there are quite a few locales that will get you put on the "no donor" list.

    The Red Cross (I assume with scientific research backing) determined that exposure to certain chemicals, cultures, locales, and environments were permanent and put the blood supply at risk...same as male homosexuality, intravenous drug use, and other categories. it DOESNT disqualify you from donating plasma. It DOES disqualify you from being an organ donor (though I have suggested they create a 'high risk donor' category and let people choose)

    I wonder if I am on a list I don't know about.



    this is what I found. Am I missing something?


    Starting in the late 70s Blood banks in the United States and some other countries began turning away Blood donors. Following below are the major reasons given for exclusion, most still in force in Blood banks, Blood donor clinics and hospitals, today:

    Excluders to giving Blood in the 1980s:
    Cancer AIDS Symptoms Hypodermic drug use Men having had sexual contact of any kind with another man or men since 1977.

    Excluders to donating Blood in the 1990s in addition to the above:
    Anyone who has had hepatitis since his or her 11th birthday Anyone who has taken pituitary growth hormone in any quantity.

    Excluders to giving Blood in 2000 to the present, in addition to all of the above:
    Anyone who has taken Tegison for psoriasis Anyone currently with drugs for an enlarged prostate in their system Anyone who spent three months or more in the United Kingdom from 1980 through 1986 Anyone who has received Bolld by transfusion in the United Kingdom or France from 1980 through the present Anyone who has spent five years in Europe from 1980 through the present time.

    Yep. boyfriend can't donate because he's been in Iraq and Korea in the past 4 years. I can't donate because I had Hep A in 1998.

    It's only a one year deferment:

    Iraq veterans can't donate for 1 year : Nursing2010

    They also put you on the deferred list for a year after getting tattooed.
