Nah, just keep a fridge full of cucumbers. When I start looking like the middle aged wreck I am, I eat organic cucumbers for a week and knock about ten years off my appearance for a good long while. I don't know if it's making me healthier, but I sure look better. Keeping cucumbers is a lot less bother than keeping pesky young people around.

So, as I age, I need to keep a stable of young people with my blood type and get transfusions on a regular basis?
This may work but seems more like the premise of a SciFy novel.

It also sounds like what some conspiracy theorist have reported with seeing missing youth seen in elite cages inside bunkers or elite bases ect. Old ritual blood sacrifices, now visualize a massive blood sacrifice and what it takes to cause 1, first guess wars.. smh

Okay, with all that aside, science is now promoting the idea of taking blood from the young to give to the elderly? What if the young don't want to give up their blood for the elderly? I can see some sick hollywoodesque future coming about with the well off hearing about this one...

First, Drinking blood will NOT give you the benefitial qualities of youthfull blood. You will simply digest it and will absorbthe iron. Much liek eating a rare juicy steak. Just like it wouldnt help someone dying of blood loss to drink blood...
I doubt having cages of young children and drinkign their blood would do any good at all.
As far as the mice are concerned I think there is a much more likely explanation to their improved performance.
in many endurance (cardiovascuar) sports doping is (illegally) used to take blood our of the body, or from another person, make it super oxygenated and rich and then retransfuse it back into the athletes body again. This gives the blood a high oxygen level and gives the athlete a superhuman amount of vox ability which directly improves endurance and the ability to use muscle function for an incresed moutn of time beore the body starts to require oxygen from the cardiovasculr system to supply the muscles with oxygen. Basicly. It allows the muscles to use the blood oxygen rather than the oxygen you get from breathing. The longer the body can use the oxygen already stored in the muscles and blood, the faster an athlete can go. usually printing is all stored oxygen and logn distance running is ll cardiovascular. So the logner you can sustain the internlly stored oxygen the longer you can perform at a 100% max output.
Well i would imagine the blood from youths would hve a much richer and higher oxygen level considering youths have a much higher vox level than most elderly. So by transfusing youthfull blood into elderly peopel would be simply nothign more than dopign their blood. And would only provide a short term boost before the blood oxygen level and iron amounts are depleted and reduced back to the bodys normal level of that person.
