Mythbusters: On Being An Organ Donor
Posted by Clark Venable on 12/24/2005
The Iowa Charles City Press has a nice piece titled Myth busters on being an organ donor which addresses the following myths:
Myth: People can recover from brain death.
Myth: Minorities should refuse to donate because organ distribution discriminates by race.
Myth: The rich and famous on the U.S. waiting list for organs get preferential treatment.
Myth: I am too old to donate organs and tissues.
Myth: My family will be charged for donating my organs.
Myth: Donation will disfigure my body.
Myth: Organs are sold, with enormous profits going to the medical community.
Myth: Marrow donation is painful. "
Please read and pass along...and 'yes' I'm an organ donor.
