Though some medical groups and advocates had endorsed stealing a anathema altogether, FDA did not give in, citing that it was not upheld by science.
Those opposite tea anathema pronounced that it propagates a fake tarnish of happy group carrying HIV. The American Red Cross, a American Medical Association and a American Association of Blood Banks have also suggested that a anathema was medically and scientifically unnecessary. The new change in process will raise a supply of donated blood each year by hundreds of thousands of pints.
FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg pronounced that FDA has reached a preference after delicately examining and deliberation a accessible systematic justification applicable to a blood donor deferral process for group who have sex with men, as good as a formula of several recently finished systematic studies and epidemiologic data.
