Like if a person just has ONLY ANEMIA...(NO AIDS NO HIV)..can someone else contact it by kissing the person who has anemia? by having sex with the person who has anemia?

Also same question about kissing and sex for Thalassemia? both the major and minor ones..??


Response from Dr. Frascino


Anemia, thalassemia major and thalassemia minor are not contagious and therefore not transmissible by kissing, shagging or doing the hokey pokey as you turn yourself around. And that's what it's all about!
