    UK Scientists make fake blood(ya rly)

    Researchers in the UK are developing artificial blood that could potentially replace real blood in emergency situations, promising a tremendous impact for military and emergency medical service applications.

    The blood is made up of plastic molecules that hold an iron atom at their core. Like hemoglobin, the artificial blood binds oxygen and transports it throughout the body.

    This 'plastic blood' can be stored as a thick paste and dissolved in water when needed. Because of this, it's much easier to transport and store than the real thing.

    Donated blood only lasts for about a month. After that, it must be discarded.

    'Plastic blood' on the other hand, can last significantly longer and - unlike real blood - remains stable at room temperature.
    OMG the future is here.

    This is cool and all, but what about the vampires that need blood to survive? Now they'll have to resort to actual violence if they can't get real blood through hospitals.

    I read about this in the Guardian last week. If I remember correctly, the blood type is '0 Negative', or something or other.
    I think it's absolutely amazing.

    I remember Years back during School, I had a discussion with one of my teachers about artificial blood. We were talking about why we didn't understand why scientists couldn't chemically make plasma etc.

    Enoch was right.
