I wondered the same, recently...decided it would not be wise for me to be a donor of blood, bc of the cellular blood level viruses, along with the symptoms showing adrenal dysfunction, CNS dysfunction, kidney and liver issues, and immune system issues, tho, I did put on my CDL organ donor years ago, I'm thinking at this point in my life, I should change my mind, this would pass on th the person it was donated to. uvm 'good question'
