Health Newsfilter: Universal Blood Newly discovered enzymes may potentially enable blood from groups A, B and AB to be converted into group O negative, which can be safely transplanted into any patient. The method may enable manufacture of universal red cells, which would substantially reduce pressure on the blood supply.
  • Wow. Great stuff! I got an A+ on my blood test...
  • Hey, me, too. A+ alla way! So now can I drink any flavor blood?
  • Aww man, I didn't study, so I only got a B-
  • I got a D-. Apparently, that's very rare.
  • Mine is Delta 32 http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=hAW&q=Delta+32+blood+&btnG=Search
  • Sorry,, Delta 32
  • You wish. *sneezes on retank
  • Wow! I can't even wrap my noggin around how awesome this could be. I wonder if this same research will ever lead to overcoming organ rejection, as well.
  • It's nice to hear about a technological breakthrough that doesn't have any obviously evil re-purposing potential for a change. Thanks for the link, sugarmilktea
  • Oh really, briank? It's only a few small steps from Universal Blood to Universal Soldiers. If Van Damme trying to pass himself off as an actor isn't evil, then I don't know what is.
  • Well, what OTHER kind of blood would universal solders shed? ;-)
