We all thought the fountain of youth was just a myth that Ponce DeLeon came up with back when he “discovered” it in the 16th century. Well, it could be a real thing now.
Scientists have discovered that when older mice were given blood protein from younger mice, it slowed down the aging process. They found that when given the younger blood protein, the older mice aged 16% less. Subsequently, they also found the mice lived 16% longer.
Whats even more interesting is that their wheel-running behaviors, sleep patterns, physical appearance, resembled that of young mice.
Could this be the new fountain of youth?
