To be short (and ignorant sounding):
I want to sell a lot of my blood to get a lot of money, since i can regenerate it by eating good quality red meat. Where do I find a company that buys blood? When how how much? Thanx

You can sell your plasma for about $20-25 a pop and you can do this about 4 times a month. Check your phone book for Plasma Collectors. Here are the basics. A machine separates plasma from the red blood cells. The red bloods cells are then returned to you along with a saline solution that helps the body replace the plasma that was removed. Your body is able to replace its plasma within 24 to 48 hours, if you are eating right and drink plenty of fluids. As such, you typically can donate two times every seven days. I sold plasma in grad school to help make ends meet, but I have to tell you, the process is not fun and takes about an hour each time.
