The study shows that the same process could be applied to anti-ageing research, and that, “Experiments are even showing that young blood itself can reverse the ageing process, perhaps even curing Alzheimer’s disease.”
Elitists and transhumanists have long been interested in harvesting material from young people in a bid to pursue life-extension.
Former North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il routinely had himself injected with blood taken from young, healthy virgins in the belief that it would help him live longer.
The Telegraph report notes that, “Harvesting the blood and body parts of the young in the hope of achieving immortality has long been a familiar trope in horror novels and conspiracy theories.”
Apparently, not for much longer.
“It may only be a few years before “youth transplants” finally move from the pages of gothic horror novels into the clinic,” writes Sarah Knapton.
