Donating plasma is very regulated in Italy. We never got money out of it. Also, much less people can do it lately, since your health is severely checked out before every donation.

I used to be a frequent donor, not out of generesity, mostly because it helped me feel physiclly refreshed, i dont know if there is a scientific explanation for it.

Then i started drinking heavily and using drugs (legal and illegal) so i was put on a sort of blacklist. My father had the same problem, because of the drinking.

But no one ever got a dime out of it. And it's weird in a country where people would sell their children's organs for a few bucks (actual news, no joke).
