Bodily fluids understandably make people queasy, especially when substances like animal blood are used in art. But if the blood of a newborn baby could make you feel young again, could you overcome your revulsion?
That may sound like a horror movie pitch, but thanks to a group of Stanford University scientists Peter Thiel’s dream of injecting himself with young peoples’ blood could become a reality.
Researchers at the California institution’s department of neurology found that blood harvested from babies’ umbilical cords had strong anti-aging effects in mice. Specifically, they discovered that a protein in the young blood called TIMP2possessed rejuvenating properties. The results were published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
