[IP] Re: blood donation (was live from New York)

>It had to do with the fact that the unused insulin in your
blood can severely
affect the recipient or possibly kill the recipient if no
one is aware of the unused insulin being present in the
donated blood..<

Total bunk! This isn't even physiologically possible with
someone who doesn't have diabetes..There body will adjust by
releasing less insulin and more glycogen breakdown from the
liver. Besides, someone who needs that blood will be
monitored very closely, and is most likely also getting IV
fluid with glucose in it.

Ridiculous and mis-informed  reasoning.
