New Company Offering "immortality" with Blood Transfuions

Post Number:#1  Post by ofonorow » Mon Aug 21, 2017 8:27 am

From teenage blood!

Sounds like a scam, but the company was formed by someone from Stanford, and we have reported/linked to previous research showing important benefits from adding teenage blood to older people. Why, presumably because the telomeres in the young blood are longer, so the stem cells can reproduce for longer periods, etc.

I am pretty sure the super rich are already trying something similar to extend their lifespan.
