Skip to comments.Young Blood May Hold Key to Reversing Aging
Posted on 05/05/2014 1:16:50 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Two teams of scientists published studies on Sunday showing that blood from young mice reverses aging in old mice, rejuvenating their muscles and brains. As ghoulish as the research may sound, experts said that it could lead to treatments for disorders like Alzheimers disease and heart disease.
I am extremely excited, said Rudolph Tanzi, a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, who was not involved in the research. These findings could be a game changer.
The research builds on centuries of speculation that the blood of young people contains substances that might rejuvenate older adults.
In the 1950s, Clive M. McCay of Cornell University and his colleagues tested the notion by delivering the blood of young rats into old ones. To do so, they joined rats in pairs by stitching together the skin on their flanks. After this procedure, called parabiosis, blood vessels grew and joined the rats circulatory systems. The blood from the young rat flowed into the old one, and vice versa.
Later, Dr. McCay and his colleagues performed necropsies and found that the cartilage of the old rats looked more youthful than it would have otherwise. But the scientists could not say how the transformations happened. There was not enough known at the time about how the body rejuvenates itself.

As soon as my cat catches a baby mouse, I grab it from her and eat it raw.
Just wait until the Count hears about this.
Social Security helps the old suck money from the young (as it is presently structured). Perhaps we should shift our accounts to the Red Cross—blood’s better than money?
Children Draining Centers will be opening soon the China
with no grant money, God was able to tell us that theres life in the blood...Leviticus 17:11
It is called hormones which cirulate in almost undetectable levels in the blood.
Testosterone and HGH are already known to do this.
Here is where they are going with this....
Clone an old person, hook baby clone blood supply up to old person....
After being hooked up for a month or years old person is “rejuvenated”....
Granted the only people who could afford this is people like Soros and the Rockefellers and Clintoons, etc....
Maybe Hillary’s Grand Baby is a Hillary Clone who will be milked for blood to make Hillary “shiny vibrant: for a 2016 run, how is that for a nut job C-theory?
FYI: Scientists have known about this effect for a very long time...
A humane way to do this would be to extract blood from old person, isolate the good healthy stem cells, multiple the healthy stem cells out of the body and re-inject them...
Enough injections and the healthy stem cells outnumber the old decrepit ones, BAM, rejuvenations...
I read a book-a mystery/thriller about something like this back in the 70’s-I think it was called “The Methuselah Enzyme”, and it really kept you wondering, with the suspense...
I think he looked better in the before picture on
Well, my much younger girlfriend is certainly keeping me young, but it’s her that’s bleeding me...
I don’t care what they say or how good it is,
ain’t nobody stitching me to no democrats.
Collecting and altering cells is involved in one of the new cancer treatments-a co-worker of mine just started it, and the side effects are almost non-existent, unlike the poison chemo that can kill you.
We now have an answer as to why Dems court the youth vote...and why they later look like zombies when see at Obama rallies after the milking.
The answer was staring us in the face all along.
Paging Countess Elizabeth Bathory.
Cue Bad Company
I don’t even want to think about where this is going to go wrong.
Just better hope that the blood you get in a transfusion comes from a young donor.
Whoops, wrong "Youngblood". My bad.
Better yet, drain the blood from the baby while it is still in the womb!
That’s what I thought when I first heard this - and I speak as a near senior.
Oh I foresee dark days ahead as the liberal elitists now demand that babies that were going to be aborted are now required to be brought to term so that they can be “farmed” for their blood. I know it sounds extreme, but think about the people I am referring to, admit it you could see them doing this, it’s that one extra step into evil that would bring a smile to their faces.
Why can’t we just all go quietly into the night? Or, as an alternative, rage against the dark? I mean, why can’t we leave our children alone and just accept death as an inevitable?
George Soros probably already has a couple hundred children “donating” to him.
I don’t see anything about it in his Wikipedia article...
"It consists largely in replacing the entire blood tissue in an old person with new, young blood. Old age, so they tell me, is primarily a matter of the progressive accumulation of the waste poisons of metabolism. The blood is supposed to carry them away, but presently the blood gets so clogged with the poisons that the scavenging process doesn't take place properly." [Chapter 7 of novel]
Just create a “bone marrow” clone. I am pretty sure cloning organs is very doable at this point.
Keep your own clone and get a transfusion from it on a monthly basis.
(BTW - now I know how Keith Richards has managed to stay alive.)
If, in fact, he actually is. I've often wondered about that...
A new use for aborted fetuses!!
Liberals can eat them to regenerate.
Can there be any other logical next step in their further descent into hell?
I can guarantee that it’s already happening. The blood-youth link has been known for quite some time
Forget the debt, wars, Obamacare, unfunded entitlements, opportunity lose in general...NOW...baby boomers can literally eat their young. They deserve it! /sarc
The Coasters will be glad to hear it.
PP has a new health drink coming out? Solent babies?
Wasn’t there an old medieval “superstition” that blood held either good or bad “humors”?
Maybe this is how he was able to get hits for two different teams in two different cities on the same day ....
Finally we can get something useful from those lazy kids.
