Young Blood May Hold Key to Reversing Aging – NYTimes.com.

Can you imagine a time where there is a breakthrough so significant, that there are cures for things like heart disease, Alzheimer’s and even the aging process?  According to this article, research has been done that shows the blood from young mice reverses aging in old mice, rejuvenating their muscles and brains.  If this happens in mice, could this also happen in humans?  Perhaps; but a caution was noted: to wake up old stem cells in older adults may mean they multiply uncontrollably; leading to cancer.  I’ll leave it to scientist to keep pushing onward.  I look forward to an update on this in the years to come.
