I decided to skip the weightlifting, an old knee injury perking up, shoulder a bit sore. What I don’t want to do is let my enthusiasm push me into an injury that would delay progress. As I mentioned yesterday, I am halfway through the project and am reasonably happy with the results thus far. Let’s keep on track.
Since my update is pretty short, let’s talk about something that is very likely to work in anti-aging and age-reversal: stem cells.
We know that stem cells are the ones that, with a bit of encouragement, can form any kind of cell in the body and that these are the keys to regenerating a great many parts of the body. This video is a bit long, but interesting.
Heterochronic Transplantation means freezing your own stem cells when you are young and then using them later.
It is very difficult to use other people’s stem cells (allogenic transplantation) because your immune system will reject it (same as with organ donation).
Mark Katakowski is part of a start up Forever Labs that acquires and freezes stem cells that can be used in the future for treatments (costs $9000 to store your cells forever). I’m not sure it would be that effective for me since I am a bit older, but I might look into it. The interesting note, to me, was that he noted that human cells can sometimes be repaired outside of the body. If this is the case, then cells that I store now might be useful in aging or other treatments well into the future as if they were from a much younger me. This is a long video, but it is interesting.
