Can Getting Transfusions of Young Blood Slow Aging?

Ready for the mind-blowing twist in the mystery of why the injection of blood from young animals into old ones has a rejuvenative effect?

If you missed it, the previous video was Parabiosis Experiments Prove Bloodborne Aging Factors ( ).

My new book, How Not to Age ( ), is all about aging, and you can get your copy now at your local public library or wherever books are sold. If you haven’t seen them yet, check out the book trailer ( ) and my new presentation ( ). (As always, all proceeds I receive from all of my books ( ) are donated to charity.)

    Poor mice. 😑 Go vegan for Peace

      As problematic as it is we have no versatile virtual human biology model that our current servers could even run if we did have such a thing, for better understanding of human treatment mammal models such as mice are necessary until some hypothetical quantum computer run simulation can replace such a thing. Unless of course you think the early 1900s human experiments should be repeated but thinking that human lives are metaphysically inferior to other animals lives strikes me as…tactless.

    Anyone know where regular people can get this done?

    • @bashisobsolete.pythonismyn6321 says:

      plant based diet to keep your blood vessels clear. take a daily low-dose aspirin. several times a day, eat fresh fruit. stay hydrated with a weak brew of hibiscus / green tea / fresh lemon.

      Some far away island with conspiracy theorists, I guess.

    Dr Greger what do you think NAD+ supplement?

  • @wadepatton2433 says:

    Tech note: Finally a change in the intro bumper. I don’t love it, but the duration is good. Hate it when they’re way too long and loud. Thanks for the semi-retro bumper we have now. These things “add up” when you watch 20-30 videos in a row like I did when “catching up” several years ago. Carry on.

    • @oskariKN25 says:

      my problem is the shreaking sound the current intro makes, it also strikes me as unnecessarily old in visual quality, Just a small visual effect logo popping out of thin air or something would be better.

    • @bashisobsolete.pythonismyn6321 says:

      probably designed that way for an older audience.

  • @barbarasaunders2160 says:

    So would therapeutic bloodletting be the same?

    Ask Hillary😂

    You look younger and better without the beard.

  • @DrSpooglemon says:

    So how do we achieve that same results without having needles poked into us? Is it kale? Please tell me it’s kale.

  • @Adeday_Mamo says:

    i CAN’T WAIT for the Bryan Johnson & DrGreger thoughts.

  • @monicasong427 says:

    Human relevant studies only please.

  • @julianvega2677 says:

    Studies show that pregnancy has protective effects on the mother’s heart. Is this similar?
