Blood Protein Derived from Rice

From rice grains a blood protein called HSA can be had according to researchers in China. HSA isn’t blood, so you still need to give blood. “HSA is used in hospitals for resuscitation, when patients need fluids, when they have lost blood, or for burn victims. According to the authors of the study, the findings suggest that the transgenic rice seeds may be a cost-effective source for HSA and might help satisfy an increasing worldwide demand for the protein.” Of course Fox uses the Dracula photo for this article. What would be funny is if anyone who does get this rice derviced HSA, turned Asian. (Fox – HSA)
