You are visiting Bloodbook.com, a web site dedicated to the exchange of accurate Blood information and health information as controlled by your Blood as revealed in the results in Blood tests. Nothing here is to be viewed as medical advice. Only a licensed and caring physician can advise you on matters pertaining to your health..... no web site and not BloodBook.com!
RED GOLD: THE EPIC STORY of BLOOD
The Blood information here is not a science fair project. Every word is carefully researched, and designed to support, not to replace, the relationship between you and your physician or other qualified health care professional. We present a carefully recommended reading list, CLICK HERE. RED GOLD: THE EPICSTORY of BLOOD

LATINO BLOOD DONATION :: HISPANIC BLOOD DONATION :: HISPANIC BLOOD CENTERS

Our hope is, as you digest the information presented on BloodBook.com, that you become aware of the benefits of personal Blood testing, at least annually, if possible, and also that you consider autologous Blood donation and storage alternatives. Beyond that, we seek to present, in an easy-to-use format, useful and accurate facts about Blood, the Blood supply and closely related subjects.

If you need Blood information, BloodBook.com is here for you!

Continuing confidence in the Blood supply is imperative. 'Facts' related to Blood safety issues seem to substantially change every week. There is confusion, doubt and fear. Mistakes having disastrous consequences are made and go un-reported every day. Adding to the chaos, is a perplexing message from the media. While every day we are assured over and over that the Blood supply is "safer than it has ever been," on those same days we may see such things as:

".....The public is provided insufficient information on the risks of blood and blood products..... ; The FDA has not effectively managed regulatory review of blood issues..... ; after the AIDS virus emerged as a threat to the blood supply, FDA still has not developed an effective system for communicating blood product recalls to pharmacists, doctors or patients.....; The size of plasma pools for fractionated products can increase the risk of infectious disease transmission." 
- "
Protecting the Nation's Blood Supply From Infectious Agents: The Need For New Standards To Meet New Threats." - Committee on Government Reform and Oversight - Approved and Adopted - 06/25/1996 [view full text HERE]

"..... In fact, the real risk of contracting a viral disease may be more like 1 in 5,000 - which is 1,000 times greater than the odds of dying in an airplane crash. Put another way, if airlines were allowed to set an 'acceptable safety standard' equivalent to that of the blood supply, there would be at least one fatal crash a month in the U.S."
-
Business Week - Scrubbing the Blood Supply 11/15/1999 [full text available HERE]

"..... In the past, a person with blood type O negative blood was considered to be a universal donor. It meant his or her blood could be given to anyone, regardless of blood type, without causing a transfusion reaction. This is no longer a relevant concept because of a better understanding of the complex issues of immune reactions related to incompatible donor blood cells."
- Mayo Clinic HealthOasis

"We are urging all veterans to be tested for hepatitis C. Eight percent to ten percent of veterans tested positive for the disease in a survey of 26,000, making the potentially deadly illness four to five times more prevalent among veterans than the rest of the population."

And then we may find this typical recall/withdrawal order from the FDA. What should we believe? Who has our best interests at heart?

These articles and reports and others like them, available for years, but not spoken of, are the reason for BloodBook.com. We are alone!

Now for a little more about Blood and a view of our frame of perspective.
PBS SERIES - RED GOLD: THE EPIC STORY of BLOOD
Sloshing around inside each of us is a couple of gallons of a precious fluid. We don't think much about it until there is a problem, then we realize the real value of our Blood. There is no replacement for human Blood, though researchers are hard at work around the world looking for a viable Blood substitute. Modern society depends on Blood, donated by humans. It is just that simple.

Worldwide five to ten percent of the cases of HIV infection are transmitted through the transfusion of infected Blood or tainted Blood products. Some of the other severe diseases that can be transmitted by transfusion include viral hepatitis C and B, syphilis, malaria and Chagas' disease. Annually, worldwide, bad transfusions cause an estimated 8 to 16 million hepatitis B virus infections, 2.3 to 5 million hepatitis C virus infections and 80,000 to 160,000 HIV infections.

Although the Blood 'industry' is ultimately responsible for the safety of the Blood supply, in every major nation, the government, or a quasi government agency is responsible for regulating this important big money 'industry.'

We at Bloodbook.com strongly believe that the Blood manufacturing industry must be made to conform to high standards and quality control requirements comparable to those of pharmaceutical companies or other similar industries, and must continue to be objectively regulated and monitored by government.

As we see it, there is still one great blessing; the United States Federal Government is not directly involved in the Blood business. It oversees and regulates, but, as of this writing, it does not manage.

In all fairness, we are fully aware that the FDA has a nearly impossible task. On one end, Congress and their constituents are pushing and pulling and pointing fingers. On the other end of the problem, there is an ever-increasing and ever more sophisticated demand for a perfect Blood supply. Further, making matters worse, is the burden of testing Blood for often "unknown" diseases..... FAST!


In the United States, licensed establishments collect donated Blood, process and distribute Blood and Blood products. Engaged in Interstate Commerce, they are therefore regulated by Federal law. There are, however, many Blood related enterprises not involved in 'Interstate Commerce' that are not licensed. These Blood donor centers, and related facilities, must register with, and like licensed establishments, be inspected by, the United States FDA (Food and Drug Administration). They are, by statute, subject to the same standards as are the licensed establishments performing the same functions. There is often a marked difference in licensed and unlicensed facilities.   red alert

Pharmacy shelves are stocked with do-it-yourself home tests for Blood glucose, Blood cholesterol paternity tests and pregnancy tests. OraSure Technologies Inc., makes and sells a 20-minute, at-home test that screens for two HIV strains using a swab device that tests saliva, awaiting the FDA.

The Blood collection centers that you drive past, with your windows up and your car doors locked, with those persons 'sleeping' on the sidewalk, are inspected and approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, an agency of the United States Government. Yes, each one is inspected and approved. They are collecting Blood that my own family might use!

The use of Blood products is also not entirely risk free. There is a risk of infection with serious Blood borne diseases such as with transfusion. Advances in science and technology promise much needed higher standards of safety in Blood collection. Hyper-accurate tests, that in some cases act more quickly, will better protect the Blood supply.   Free Cord Blood Bank

For those who need a Blood transfusion, the risk of transfusion problems is far less than the risk of dying or becoming more seriously ill without that transfusion.

BloodBook.com has hundreds of articles and links on all of these subjects. We are working as fast as we can to post these on this web site for every visitor to access. We invite you to become a member of BloodBook.com so that we can better keep you up to date on this complex subject.

We receive a great deal of Blood information (and gossip) each day. The BloodBook.com rule is: if it cannot be verified as having originated from a reputable source, it will not be posted on BloodBook.com until it has been legitimately cleared.
