This is a historical leftover. It needs to be changed.

I cannot in Canada as I am from the UK. This is due to CJD, quite funny as I have been a vegetarian since 1989!

As for donations from gay men, all blood is tested before it gets anywhere near a patient so I do not see the problem.

How many "straight" people lie on the form about their lifestyles?
