Why Are Old People Taking The Blood Of Young People?

Why Are Old People Taking The Blood Of Young People?


Hey there, welcome to Life Noggin! Lately, Triangle Bob has been obsessed with
working out. He started asking questions like, “Does
young blood actually make you stronger?” And I was like, “Triangle Bob, why are you
asking that”, but I mean, I guess I’ll make an episode on it! You see, Triangle Bob isn’t the only gym
junkie who’s had this disturbing thought. One story even claims the first transfusion
occurred way back in 1492, when a dying pope accidentally killed three young taking their
blood. Yet long before that, Ancient Egyptians were
relaxing in rejuvenating baths of this vital fluid, while some Romans were drinking it
from fallen gladiators in an attempt to grow stronger. It sounds preposterous, and the wild thing
is, it’s still happening to this day, though in a far less, uhh, barbaric way. Under the guise of a scientific study, one
company has been offering those over 35 the chance to fill their veins with the blood
of younger donors, all for the small fee of eight thousand dollars. With no control group or placebo, these ‘scientific
studies’ are more like scams, and in 2019, the FDA issued a sharp rebuke that forced
some of these ‘unscrupulous’ companies to shut down. Still, there’s some logic to the practice. As it turns out, blood does change the way
we age, and the younger it is, the more healing. By joining the circulatory system of an old
mouse to a young one, recent studies have shown some remarkable results, bringing new
life to ageing organs, making older mice stronger, smarter and healthier. Not to mention their shiny fur. One cross-animal study even found that blood
from the human umbilical cord improved memory and learning in older mice. Naturally, the research has inspired human
trials in China, Korea, and America, most of which rely on young plasma transfusions. This is blood without the blood cells, and
it alone contains over 1,000 proteins many of which we know little about. The race is on to find the elixir of life
hiding within, but before Triangle Bob gets too excited by an even bigger frame, there’s
some bad news. The results we have so far are pretty mixed
and quite small. After one month, a double-blind, placebo-controlled
study on 14 Parkinson’s patients found two doses of young plasma over three days dramatically
improved pain, speech, handwriting, tremors and falling. The same dose in 13 multiple sclerosis patients
improved fatigue, mobility, concentration, and urinary control. Still, these clinical trials remain in their
infancy and they’re not always so hopeful. As a treatment for Alzheimer’s, plasma has
shown minimal if any cognitive benefits. Without any long-term studies, the risks are
unknown. Today, there are concerns that if young plasma
jumpstarts the body’s stem cells, it could lead to cell proliferation and maybe even
cancer. It’s a huge risk for what is currently an
alternative treatment at best. That’s not to say scientists are giving
up, but for now, if Triangle Bob really wants to live long and strong, he’s better off
sticking to the gym. So is there any other bodily autoties that
you want us to talk about next? Let me know in the comment section below. Curious to know if you could give blood after
you die? Check out this video! the blood inside a dead body stays usable
for about six to eight hours after death. The cadavaric blood transfusion actually happened
in Russia, back in 1930 As always my name is Blocko! This has been Life Noggin! Don’t forget to keep on thinking.
