TELEGRAPH.CO.UK: 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.

BRIETBART.COM: Transfusions of blood from young people could reverse the ageing process and possibly even cure Alzheimer’s disease, according to Harvard scientists. The research team found that young blood ‘recharges’ the brain, forms new blood vessels and improves memory.

In a second study, the scientists also discovered a so-called ‘youth protein’ which helps keep the brain and muscles strong. Known as GDF11, the protein is abundant in the bloodstream of younger people but gradually disappears as they age.

The Telegraph says that although the discoveries were made by testing on mice, the researchers hope to begin human studies soon. Researchers injected the blood of three-month-old mice into mice near the end of their natural life span. They found that the memory and learning capacity of the older mice improved following the treatment, and saw structural, molecular and functional changes in their brains READ MORE:http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/05/05/Vampire-Therapy-Could-Reverse-Ageing
