Follow up to the question I asked before about donating blood. With all of the blood testing they do on ALL donated blood... do you think the ban on homosexual men donating blood should be lifted?

People who are homosexual have a higher chance of an STD so they would need to be tested

Everyone should be tested. Actually, I thought that ban had been lifted years ago.

Wow! I really had no idea that ban was still in effect! I honestly thought once they figured out it wasn't gay cancer the ban was lifted. Have I been out of the loop or what!?! I'm so ashamed!! I should know these things!

High risk activities create undue risk to the general population. I am restricted due to my travels to India. HIV also.exist both intercellular and intra-cellular. It is my understand that the intra is more difficult to detect.

I can't answer that so I played it safe & said no. I don't know what the new infection rate for HIV is, what demographics is it high in (gay men/injected drug abusers etc), or - most important - how early after infection they are able to detect HIV.
