Thousands of hemophiliac children have contracted hepatitis and aids from transfusion with infected blood. Ninety-five percent of all Americans will need transfusions at some point in their lives; yet it has taken the terrifying emergence of AIDS to alert an unsuspecting public to the actual risks involved. Dr. Feldschuh documents the inadequacies and shocking oversights of the blood-bank system, elucidating the risks of present practices and suggesting specific alternatives, including the now feasible storing of one's own blood, "pedigreed" donors, and mono-donor transfusion.
