FACTOID FRIDAY
People of the Jehovah’s Witness denomination of Christianity don’t believe in receiving blood transfusions, even in life-or-death emergencies. This includes stores of their own blood taken in preparation for major surgery. They believe the act of ingesting blood is a violation of God’s law according to the Bible, and those who receive a transfusion may face expulsion from the religion. Blood products such as albumin or immunoglobulins are not absolutely prohibited and may be left to personal discretion.
