Red Cross - Mad Cow

Linda talks with Dr. Bernadine Healy, President and C.E.O. of the American Red Cross, about a ban on blood donations because of a fear of Mad Cow Disease. Healy says a ban of blood donations from people who lived in Western Europe anytime after 1980 could apply to six percent of Red Cross donors, and could cause a serious shortage.
