Blood Money, by Kathleen McLaughlin

Staff Pick

Kathleen McLaughlin has a chronic health condition requiring regular plasma infusions. But where does the "liquid gold" that saves her life come from? Her deep and detailed reporting reveals an industry that can only be called vampiric: it preys on the poor, luring the most vulnerable with cash incentives,which many plasma donors need to make ends meet--unwittingly feeding the monster. This shocking book blows the lid off the relationship between poverty, capitalism, and health care.
