Description

A Palm Beach Post investigation reveals that "much of the blood that Americans donated to victims of the Sept. 11 attacks ended up being sold to multinational companies and other countries. A month after the attacks, U.S. blood exports jumped 48 percent to $90 million, the highest monthly total on record. American blood industry officials don't want to talk about overseas shipments, fearing the psychological fallout resulting from the over-collection and export of Sept. 11 blood would discourage donors, who are routinely told their blood will stay in the community."
