If a girl is 5ft4 and 9 stone she's classed as underweight, so I think it'd be fair to say someone 5ft6 and under 8stone is pretty drastically underweight!
And I would hardly say anyone here's encouraging obesity. I'm not tryin to cause a debate or anything, just ensure that some girl looking at this doesn't think 's**t im 5ft 6 and no where near 8 stone..right better loose weight etc' just tryin to be nice

i take your point graciously - please refrain from calling me a typical 'lad' though i am far from that

Hmm are you sure? 5'4 and 9 stone is "normal weight" on the chart I have.

I've had my fair share in my time and i'm not fond of them at all. Someone in my year gave blood for the first time and ended up with a huge bruise; i think it was her last time as well.

Fair enough, but at the same time.....
avoiding getting a huge bruise vs. saving a life.....?

It's her view not mine. In Israel people that are healthy have to give blood. There is more than one way to saving a life. I don't know why the clever scientis come up with an artificial substitute for blood; it can't be that complicated.

Of course not, it's the easiest thing in the world. Scientists just think it's a barrel of laughs spending millions trying to pick up the altruistic spirit in the population

Nono, I wasn't attacking you at all, just postulating (as one does).
And yeah, it really can be that complicated.

I think I read about 'faux' RBC and plasma being in development. These things have to go thru' from development, pre-clinical safety thru to clinical trail. Takes about 10 years.....

Some years ago I was working on an artificial 'blood' which could be used for emergency transfusions. Didn't have RBCs to carry oxygen, or any of the useful plasma factors, just a solution of cloned Human Serum Albumin to keep people alive short term.

Ran into some problems in clinical trials and I'm not sure it ever got licensed for transfusions, though it is used in other medical procedures.

We were also working on cloned haemaglobin, but when the HSA didn'y go smoothly the company funding the work dropped out :-<. I left shortly afetr.


Seems some work is continuing though

The site even has a picture of my plasmid!

Well if scientists can make submarines that go thousands of metres under water, aeroplanes that cruise at 650mph, atomic,nuclear,hydrogen and biological bombs, allegedly flying man to the moon i don't see why it's really so hard to make an artificial blood in comparison to the above. They just need to get their priorities right.
