    Hello, boils and ghouls! Why not celebrate your Halloween with some spooktaculur science news?

    You know that old saying, "Blood is thicker than water?" Well, if recent experiments are to be believed, blood also beats water in the "reversing aging" department.

    Not only... what's that? I should cut to the chase? Very well then.

    So, it seems that if you want to avoid getting old, you need to stay fresh with the young blood. (Note: This is not Rob Liefeld's Youngblood. That's known to significantly shorten the lifespan). Now, these tests have only been conducted on rodents, so it's too early too know what exactly human tests will entrail.

    Still, one can always hope; maybe we can finally develop a treatment for the ravages of time, one that won't bleed patients dry.

    (Thanks to Veho for the link!)

    These pieces of news are always coming up. Something like this looks like one of those well tested theories, so yeah, things like this will probably figure themselves out soon!

    I can see this concept in a dystopian novel.

    If you're okay with the fact that you're using blood from a child, you don't deserve to live.

    Why don't you put the IMPORTANT bits in your posts?
    You always jump back up with some "THIS WAS IN THE SOURCE" thing every time I point out something controversial. T_T

    He can't just plagiarize the source by copy/pasting the whole thing. We don't allow that.

    Well it looks like you could also take it from a teen, not just a young child, and I'd hope there would have to be consent on the blood donors side.

    I don't think I'd mind giving some blood if I knew it'd help my grandmother, but I can see a lot of grandchildren leaning towards the opposite side.

    I provide a general summary of the article as we are supposed to (and throw in some puns for good measure). For people interested in learning more about the subject, and to give credit where credit is due, a link to the original text is provided.

    Plus, there's a difference between pointing out controversy and just jumping to wild conclusions.
