    This forum could use some young blood, literally?

    """researchers studying mice found that giving old animals blood from young ones can reverse some signs of aging"""

    Speculating about what happens under the obverse scenario -- why does the blood bank still want my blood?

    I saw that. Sounds kind of interesting. I wonder if that will have an affect on what blood is preferred. Will blood/plasma banks pay more for younger blood? I'm sure people like the red cross will still take any blood they can get (except mine - they've been saying no to that for 15 years).
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Maybe they'll start testing for GDF11 or institute age matching?!

    There was a book that I read back in the early 80's about a group of older folks who had figured out how to convert blood from young people into a kind of "youth serum". They would befriend young couples without any other family and, ultimately, extract their blood for their nefarious purposes.

    And I think anyone would be lucky to get a donation from anyone on this forum - we may not exactly be spring chickens but are at least healthy.

    Hey, it works for Dracula! He's still alive, right?

    This sure sounds encouraging. The news report I saw had a clear "Don't try this at home" warning at the end.
