I wonder if that cow got it from somewhere else, or if it sporadically developed the disease.
I am indefinitely deferred from donating blood because I lived in Spain for three years. As I tell people, even though I’m fine, anyone who gets my blood will get mad cow disease.
Probably just a hugely fat communist politician acting like a mad cow. Happens all the time.
“I am indefinitely deferred from donating blood because I lived in Spain for three years.”
I envy you. I love Spain. My son walked for the first time in Catalonia. Where were you in Spain?
Are you allowed to give blood? Those of us who lived in U.K. can’t.
And, of course, everyone knows why PMS was called PMS.
Is Hillary in Spain?
Same here for living in the UK. Had a close friend die from it. It was horrible,
I call it - having a case of the ‘moo’.
Yep - was in Italy from ‘78 thru Aug of ‘80 - some years later was told I couldn’t donate blood because of Mad Cow and the cutoff for being back was something like July of ‘80....yet they think it’s fine for active butt pounders to donate - incredible.
This is why the repeal of country of origin labeling was and is a very big freaking deal.
This case will spark industry supply chain security investigations.
Lovely Rota, although we rented a house in Chipiona a few km away.
My younger son was born there.
He also cannot donate blood.
No, I cannot give blood, and neither can my husband or son.
The deferral guide lists a number of European countries where, if you lived there in the early 1980s for a certain length of time, or were a member of the military in that country for a different length of time, you cannot donate.
