Articles about stem cells grown in laboratories refer to them being grown on dishes and transferred, well, growing fungi and transfering mycelia from dish to dish is no problem for me.... I wonder how different mammalian cells would be... I figure they don't smell too nice and are probably highly prone to bacteria and viruses.
It would also be interesting to know how exactly they prepare injections. If I knew how all that is done I might give up my principle of not shooting up anything.
There are easier ways to boost your stem cell rejuvenation:
Quote:The researchers say fasting "flips a regenerative switch" which prompts stem cells to create brand new white blood cells, essentially regenerating the entire immune system.
"It gives the 'OK' for stem cells to go ahead and begin proliferating and rebuild the entire system," said Prof Valter Longo, Professor of Gerontology and the Biological Sciences at the University of California.
"And the good news is that the body got rid of the parts of the system that might be damaged or old, the inefficient parts, during the fasting.
“Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or ageing, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system."
Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose and fat but also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells.
During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells.
There are several scientific studies on this
