How does organ donation work in your Country? In England and Sweden we have to sign organ donation papers' before we die.
Serious answer. I wrote it up. Look it up.
The problem in Engand and in Sweden is, donated organs are rare.......some other dialysis patients in the same clinic as myself have been waiting 8 or more years', for a kidney transplant......I was just thinking should the Goverments of both Countries work on some new laws regarding organ donation?
Simply because all cancer's are on a rapid increase across the world and in the next ten year's, I read it is predicted that 1 in 3 people will have some kind of cancer?........in 20 years it will be 1 in 2 people with cancer..
Just a thought
Thanks for the replies............
Bye the way how can I spell check my replies? Thanks.
I am a organ donor. I just signed up for it when I got my drivers license. It's pretty simple here in America.
Body Farm....for real?
In NZ it is stated on our drivers license too.
I think you have to leave your used pipe organ on the side of the road, then wait for a big truck to come haul it away.
I seem to recall reading in china that they use criminals for organ donation - in my mind a good use!!
I like the assumed consent for most cases. But, that starts stepping on some toes with religious beliefs.
I have a Kidney transplant from my brother, that I received 15-years ago.He was a perfect mach, and as a result, I have always been on relatively lower dosages of anti-rejection drugs over the years. In the states, as mentioned, you can sign up as a POTENTIAL donor and have the information on your drivers license, as that is the document that is most likely to be with you at most times.
This is a convenience for the system to get a jump on the final and still complicated harvesting process.
There is still a lot of debate here on how to manage the selection process for recipients once they have a donor organ, and that is a very complex subject.
As to your comment on the increase in Cancers, is there any doubt as to the possible cause? Just go pretty much anywhere and buy something to eat, whether it is; fast food, restaurant food, supermarket food, or roadside stand food. The take it to have it analyzed for chemicals. If the results don't scare the Hell out of you, I will be very surprised.

In just Pennsylvania and Texas thousands of non-US citizens have been registered to vote. I wonder what the numbers would be if the 48 other states performed the same type of voter purges? I've seen it in California. When people tried to do something about it, they were...

At what age should yearly retesting for a drivers license begin? Or should it?While I was shopping in Target last week an elderly man drove through the front of the store.

Is it selfish to choose not to donate your organs after you die?Only 25% of Canadians and less than 40% of Americans are organ donors. Is there any reason for you, as a dead person, to keep your organs that's more important than possibly saving another person's life? Should organ...
