It is the latest excitement throwing the science community in a frenzy, new research evidence that the blood of the young, literately does magical repairs and rejuvenates the old!
Linda Partridge a scientists at the University College of London gave hints in the journal NATURE on recent convincing research proving not only the possibility of prolonging considerably the health of older humans via blood transfusion, but that the tools to making that possible are almost here
