So it looks like the secret to eternal life has been discovered, thanks to Russian scientist Anatoli Brouchkov…
The scientist believes he has found eternal life by injecting himself with 3.5 million year old bacteria.
The 58 year old has said he feels healthier and stronger after taking the ‘elixir of life’.
But unfortunately, it’s too soon for anyone else to try it. So Anatoli will be the only man living for centuries at the moment.
Head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State, Anatoli discovered a bacteria called Bacillus F. This has remained alive in permafrost for millions of years.
Because it has lasted for millions of years, many people have been led to believe that it defies the ageing process and could improve people’s lifespan.
Experiments on mice, fruit flies, plants and humans has come up with intriguing results.
Brouchkov told the Siberian Times:
I started to work longer, I’ve never had a flu for the last two years. It wasn’t quite a scientific experiment, so I cannot professionally describe the effects. But it was quite clear for me that I did not catch flu for two years. Perhaps there were some side-effects, but there should be some special medical equipment to spot them.
But before it can be made available to anyone else, experiments need to be conducted on why this bacteria is extending life.
It still needs the experiments. We have to work out how this bacteria prevents ageing. I think that is the way this science should develop. What is keeping that mechanism alive? And how can we use it for our own benefits?
