I can't donate blood, or at least here in the US, because I was born in the UK in 1989 and lived there for over three years.

I believe it's due to the Mad Cow epidemic that was there.. I don't know all the specifics, but I think if you've visited the UK for over 3 months, had surgery, or resided there between 1980 - 1995...?... then you're not able to donate or something....not sure anymore.
