Oh dear, it seems in the quest for youthful skin, experts have looked to the vampire trend for some inspiration. Experts have discovered that injecting young blood is the key to anti-ageing.
According to the New York Times, scientists from various universities tested the young blood theory on mice and found that it reversed the ageing effect.
They injected older mice with the blood from younger mice and discovered that their muscles and brains were rejuvenated. Sounds like a horror movie to be honest.
However, it’s not just beauty that this theory could help – Stanford scientists found the young blood sped up muscle repair and Harvard researchers believe it could help damaged heart tissue. It may also help Alzheimer sufferers.
Frighteningly, Dr.Toren Finkel director of the Centre for Molecular Medicine at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute says: “We can turn back the clock instead of slowing the clock down. That’s a nice thought if it pans out.”
Benjamin Button comes to mind…
