The BadOrgan and body donating is sometimes not all that great. The down side of organ and body donating can leave good ratings but also bad remarks. For instance the main problem with donating is that there is more in demand than can be produced. More people need an organ transplant than can people actually receive it. The National Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) is a computerized national registry that matches donors to recipients. This computer system is the decision maker on whether or not you are able to receive a transplant. Another downside is that there is a likelihood of the organ you receive being rejected. You must go through a series of test to even be consider a “PERFECT” match. There are many other complications that make organ and body donating complicated such as, blood type, body proportions, medical history, health insurance, age, and many other problems. Donating your body or organs may not be all that great.
