Can You Die From Touching Someone Else Blood
What happens if I loose 5/6 ltrs of blood, will I die. Can a person die if he donates 5/6ltrs blood.?
Yes, death.: If you were to lose 83% of your blood volume, yes you would be dead, and die prior to reaching that volume lost. Can only donate one whole unit (~500ml) of blood or two pheresed units of blood with the plasma and non-red-blood-cells returned. Read more
What would happen if someone in the US who is on blood thinners and caught ebola? Would the be more likely to die?
More likely: Since a major, debilitating effect of the virus which targets the hematologic system, is to cause bleeding in many portions of the body internally and externally, then it would seem likely that blood less likely to clot would be more likely to cause bleeding to the point of death at an earlier time than otherwise.

Steeped on glass and some very tiny peaces stayed inside, will the glass transfer through blood to other body parts? And can I die from this?
No, they stay put:
This is glass, and will stay as glass, not get absorbed into the body aside from locally at the foot, possibly creating some fibrous scar tissue as encapsulation.
You might have occasional pains, if you step on the existing piece of glass the wrong way, or push it or touch it. Many people coexist with bullet-fragments embedded after a gunshot, and glass is a less dangerous version of the same. Read more

A pediatric endocrinologist has to care for these babies. Read more
