The Real Story Behind Blood Donations (Medical Documentary)
1 hour documentary.
'Blood Business sheds light on the opaque trade of the blood plasma industry. From the impoverished streets of Cleveland Ohio to the golden shores of Switzerland's Lake Zurich, the film explores the intricacies around the business of blood. Plasma, a component of blood that is highly sought-after, now costs more per liter than petrol. Used by pharmaceutical companies to create expensive medications, this precious liquid has become a lucrative commodity. This film investigates one of the largest corporations in this flourishing market, with profits soaring over €1 billion (US$1.13 billion). Their donation centers are mostly found in poor neighborhoods in the US, and they pay donors for their blood – a practice forbidden in Europe. For impoverished Americans, blood donations have become a source of income, presenting a real risk to their health, as they lie about their conditions and donate repeatedly to make ends meet. Other donors give blood in the hope of helping others, but the reality of where their donations actually go can be somewhat different. We investigate the global trade in blood and plasma donations.'
Prion infections, blood and transfusions

Blood has not generally been regarded as a prion vector, but three individuals who contracted variant CJD through blood transfusion have recently been identified
Blood transfusion, vaccinations, medical conditions.

HIV vaccine -defer indefinetely
Experimental vaccinations-12 month

Wait 12 months or more before donating anything- Trial vaccines for HIV or hepatitis C
Certain medications may delay your ability to donate blood.

Looking back at Blood Transfusion and Hepatitis B- Dr Stefan Lanka Interview 1998
Zenger’s: Are you saying that all forms of hepatitis are non- infectious, or just some of them?
Dr. Lanka: No, there’s no such thing as infectious hepatitis.
Zenger’s: So there are no hepatitis viruses, either.
Dr. Lanka: Yes. Hässig was always fighting to make sure that blood products were produced only on the basis of a small pool of donors who were young and healthy. The industry started to produce blood products on the basis of commercial blood donations, using a huge amount of blood samples, pooling them all together in a large pool, because then it was much cheaper to get out all the various kinds of products.
Zenger’s: In this country, it gets even worse because blood donations are one of the principal ways homeless people have of staying alive. As a result, we’re taking a lot of our blood supply from people in society who have the least healthy lifestyles.
Dr. Lanka: I know all the details. This what I’m going to tell you. Professor Hässig once met the person responsible for the industry to produce industrial blood products, and once, when this person was drunk while visiting the Fiji Islands after a conference in Australia, this person told Professor Hässig that soon they are going to smash the state-owned blood producing units, based on voluntary blood donations, because they’re much cheaper producing their blood products because they go into the Third World countries, and they are already there in all the prisons of the dictators in South America and elsewhere.
When Hässig heard about this, he rang some of his friends — and, of course, Hässig was the leading person in the blood business — and at this time there were some non-corrupted people in the WHO (World Health Organization). So, in an emergency meeting, on short notice so the industry had not time to corrupt the members who decided on these issues, they decided that the position of the WHO would be that it isn’t allowed to produce plasma in the Third World, because they would bleed them out.
Now they are bleeding out the poorest of the poor, and they are going to Mexico, near where we are sitting right now. In order to help the commercial blood products industry, the FDA [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] has approved that a single person may give up to 50 units of plasma a year. That means he may drop in two times a week to give blood and liver plasma. And an elephant wouldn’t possibly survive that, right? So that’s the background, and what they did when all that was in place was they changed the way they were treating hemophiliacs. It started in California.
Up to the year 1969 it was forbidden to give the clotting factors to hemophiliacs unless they had internal bleeding. If they would give them prophylactically, antibodies would be produced because these blood products are highly contaminated. In 1969 the industry started to convince some medical doctors — and the first one was a woman doctor in California — to treat hemophiliac patients prophylactically with those clotting factors, and this is how the industry made a lot of money. And, of course, the bodies of these hemophiliacs made a lot of antibodies against those products, which had been foreseen. They’ve had to use higher doses of clotting factors ever since, in order to compete with those antibodies, so that those clotting factors actually work. They gradually have to increase the amount they are injecting.
This has been the biggest business in the blood industry ever since. Nobody’s speaking about this, but that’s why almost all hemophiliacs have come down with hepatitis. If you inject such a high amount of foreign proteins, and all the contaminants, then of course the liver, as the central metabolic organ, is stressed out, resulting in hepatic inflammations. A lot of hemophiliacs died from hepatitis, and it was blames on nonexistent viruses.
- potential shortage of blood products/plasma if many people get multiple covid-19 vaccinces and become unsuitable donors unless they make up new guidlines.
( One site recommends to wait 12 month before giving blood following an expeperimental vaccine)
- covid 19 vaccininated donors and transplants need also be considered
