A transfusion of youthful blood may halt or even reverse the ageing process as two studies find that the chemical make-up of younger blood has surprising health benefits
It may seem the stuff of gothic horror novels, but transfusions of young blood could reverse the ageing process and even cure Alzheimer’s Disease, scientists believe.

Throughout history, cultures across the globe have extolled the properties of youthful blood, with children sacrificed and the blood of young warriors drunk by the victors.

It was even rumoured that the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il injected himself with blood from healthy young virgins to slow the ageing process.

Now scientists have found that young blood actually ‘recharges’ the brain, forms new blood vessels and improves memory and learning.

In parallel research, scientists at Harvard University also discovered that a ‘youth protein’ which circulates in the blood is responsible for keeping the brain and muscles young and strong.

This could become business, big morbid business. While this discovery is a positive one, laying it out under a vampire story isn't.

chuckle.gif @ David...
The telegraph wove this article in a very strange, sensational way. The fact vampires were brought into at all is just weird.
The scientific aspects of this major find were overshadowed by what I presume was an attempt at humor. I wouldn't quit that day job if I were them.
That aside, I see the strangest industry ever popping up before long. Beauty centers, nails, hair, skin and transfusions.
All blood diseases considered, what could possibly go wrong?

The most common examples of blood-borne disease are HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and viral hemorrhagic fevers. wtf2.gif

The scientific community is already working on reverse aging using stem cells and it looks very promising.
