JW DO USE Blood2012-02-13 16:17:33dhaszard

Jehovahs Witnesses take blood products now in 2012........ They take all fractions of blood. This includes hemoglobin, albumin, clotting factors, cryosupernatant and cryopoor too, and many, many, others......... If one adds up all the blood fractions the JWs takes, it equals a whole unit of blood. Any, many of these fractions are made from thousands upon thousands of units of donated blood......... Jehovah’s Witnesses can take Bovine *cows blood* as long as it is euphemistically called synthetic Hemopure......... The fact that the JW blood issue is so unclear is a detriment and downright dangerous in the emergency room.

Primum Non Nocere - First Do No Harm2012-02-13 16:04:51nick101

"Primum Non Nocere - First Do No Harm" found itself inside the formation of another documentary. Starting with an entirely different project, the original concept 'Beijing Goes Bloodless', was short-listed for the Co-Production Challenge, at Mipdoc, in 2008. The movie unfolds as world renowned experts share the latest scientific evidence - debunking claims that blood transfusions always save lives. Millions of patients are now in danger from previously unknown risks associated with blood transfusions; for example the effects of DNA and chromosome transfers. What are the long term implications of receiving other peoples' DNA or receiving chromosomes from the opposite sex after a blood transfusion? The film explores the controversial history of blood transfusions and the greatest obstacle facing global healthcare; the reflex rejection of new knowledge, because it contradicts entrenched paradigms.
