Human Tissue Complications
There has been much controversy over human tissue donors not being tested prior to harvest. The sale and use of illegal tissue and diseased organs has also been known to occur, and if you are suffering as a result of a human tissue defect, then you need to speak with a defective product lawyer. Untested organs, tissue, and blood can cause serious diseases and infections in recipients and sometimes can result in death.
