If you choose to become an organ donor, even after you are dead, you can save the lives of 8 human beings. All the major religions encourage believers to donate their organs to help others. It doesn’t mean that there aren’t some misconceptions about organ transplantation. Below you will find some of the most common myths.
- Contrary to popular belief, people don’t have to fear that they will fall into a coma, and after they wake up, some of their organs will be missing. Organs are taken in the case of brain death – something that is completely different from a coma. If you fall into a coma, you might eventually wake up and recover. If you are declared brain dead, there is, unfortunately, no possibility of recovery, meaning your organs can help save the lives of other people, as they wouldn’t be of any help to you.
- It doesn’t matter how much money you make or whether you are a world-famous actor that is venerated by an entire generation of teenage girls – those things have zero effect on how much time you’ll have to wait for an organ transplant. In this way, all people who are on the waiting list are equal, regardless of their race or gender.
- If you decide to become an organ donor, there are no additional costs for either you or your family.
- You don’t have to worry that your body will be disfigured after your death if you have decided to become an organ donor. It is 2020, and it is entirely possible to remove the organs from a body without damaging it. It means that if you would like to have an open-casket funeral, becoming an organ donor is not an obstacle.
Unfortunately, it is estimated that 22 people die every day in the United States because there was no matching organ donor. You can become an organ donor at any age; likewise, your race or sexual orientation doesn’t matter as well. People who are on the waiting list often wait years before the matching donor is finally found. The change of the legal status of marijuana in many states means that it is easier to manage the pain. Although many companies still conduct drug tests, it is possible to cheat on those, f.e. using Quick Fix Plus.
