Oh my goodness! Goodness gracious me!. Is there a test for exposure to MCD?
The MCD scare in Europe was very sensationalised in newspapers and television, so I suppose the Red Cross decided to err on the safe side. Anybody who has spent more than one year in either GB or France is no longer allowed to donate. (Well, at least that is the case here in Germany.)
The whole MCD thing, I think, has been blown a little out of proportion. I'm not allowed to donate blood in the US, either, because I've lived in Europe (any part, not just England). But here in Europe, it's not like they import blood. People here donate, people here use it, and no one gets sick...
