Ahh yes, and if that can take 20+ years for symptoms to develop then my mid-life crisis may really be a real crisis! Moooooo

Just an aside though, surely anyone who's lived there since then could have it too? If its in the blood system in the UK and anyone has had blood? (Perhaps they can screen for it there maybe?)

As I say I have given blood here in Turkey before and never had any problems. They always test it and never found anything. Even before Sevgi and I got married we both had to have blood tests and when we decided to have children we had blood tests to make sure our blood types were ok.

There is a real concern, and in this case Turkey is playing 'catch-up' - if they allowed you to do it before it was before they caught up to the rest of the world in terms of understanding this

Current understanding of vCJD is that it is possible for it to remain in your blood stream for up to *50 years* before becoming active. You may be a carrier for this prion and not know it.

The USA also disallows blood donations from the English from this time as well - I had to look up the exact phraseology .. Rather than re-type it, I've linked it -

I wonder if private hospitals are under the same rules? I know sometimes in the past foreigners have given blood in direct response to an appeal from a local private hospital for a specific individual in emergencies, I suppose that wont be possible now either?
