FDA warning brings controversial young blood transfusion company to a halt

On Tuesday, the FDA issued a warning to anyone who might be inclined to give their old bones a jolt with fresh blood harvested from the young. The idea is pretty far from mainstream, even in Silicon Valley, where the ultra-wealthy have a keen interest in the cutting edge of life extension science. Still, there’s apparently enough buzz around the practice that the FDA is warning consumers of “unscrupulous actors” who tout the benefits of infusing patients with plasma extracted from youthful donor...

These are tempting offers, and this is a very lucrative and growing business in the United States as people age and many older adults seek out ways to maintain cognitive functioning. “Brain training” grew from $600 milli...

Crossing border with rx

http://mynorthwest.com/1278297/ross-...an-travel/vial I have never had problems crossing with rx drugs though once i was pulled out for secondary screening. It is unofficial policy to allow you to pass with a 90 day supply of personal rx drugs, I get humalog insulin for under 1/10th the us price in Canada. In the border wall bill of over 1,000 pages this would become law and official. Only a few pages deal with border crossing and the word wall is not mentioned.

Schizotypal Personality Disorder?

I hear/see things that other people don’t. My family blame my overactive imagination, but I know that I’ve seen/heard things. Especially because I once a heard a man calling my name and felt his breath on my neck, even though I was alone. I have a strong, strong belief in reincarnation, an obsession with fantasies and magic, and I do sometimes think that everyone has a supernatural ability.

Setting my 2019 Race Schedule

My word of the year is challenge , and that’s something I’ve been focusing on as I set my race schedule for the year. I’ve had the races for the first half of the year pretty well locked down – a few olympics as tune-up and rehearsal for my big goal, IM 70.3 Ohio. But that only takes me through July.
