Everybody says that ancient man used technology to build this and that and used alien DNA to live longer. No, they had knowledge that we'll never fully understand. Like the 'Vampire Theory'.
They took blood from children and virgins and it recharged them somewhat. Where they got this knowledge from, who knows.
Interesting story. I wonder if we'll hear any more about this in the future.

I've always wondered if vampires were real. I used to be super-obsessed with vampires.
Vampires are actually half demon half human as they evolved in the end of the great cycle. .
And they would be classifled as super human comparsion to the new young human race when the new cycle begins. . .
Unbelievable but the ancient book stated so. . .
The most recent, comprehensive national study for the number of missing children estimated in 1999: 797,500 children younger than 18 were reported missing in a one year period of time studied resulting in an average of 2,185 children being reported missing each day

Again, everybody just reasons with "guilty by association".
1. It doesn't work, unless the blood is compatible. It's not even proven that same blood group is enough. Genetic match may be required for stem cells to do their magic.
2. The recovery (found rate) of missing children in US is 97%. Not so many left for eeeevil vampires anymore (stats from Missingkids.com).
Before you jump into conclusions, do some basic research. Took me 3 minutes.
Of course, it's not so "fun" as to speculate out of your arse, but it does remove the veil of ignorance, bit by bit, by each learning you gain.

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.
Now scientists have found that young blood actually ‘recharges’ the brain, forms new blood vessels and improves memory and learning.
Scientists at Harvard University discovered that a ‘youth protein’ which circulates in the blood is responsible for keeping the brain and muscles young and strong. The protein, known as ‘GDF11’, is present in the bloodstream in large quantities when we are young but peters out as we age.
'Vampire therapy' could reverse ageing, scientists find
Injecting the blood of virgins to stay young. Things that make you go "hmmmmm?"

Oh great. If this gets out, there wont be a safe child left in the world. I can imagine a future where immortal elites will have a donor child strapped to their back.
The OP's article goes right to "injecting yourself with the blood of the young". As if this protein gdf11 couldn't be easily synthesized and mass produced. Then you could just have them add it to your morning smoothy.
