A group of Russian scientists, lead by Anatoli Brouchkov, head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, believe that the secret to eternal youth might actually lies in the permafrost of Siberia. They’re experimenting with a strain of 3.5-million year old bacteria discovered on an expedition during 2009, in the Sakha Republic, Siberia. Two years ago, Brouchkov volunteered to become a guinea pig for the “eternal life” bacteria after several successful trials on mice and human blood cells. He claims to have become healthier as well as more energetic ever since, and said: “I started to work longer, I’ve never had a flu for the last two years. Of course, such experiments need to be conducted in clinic, with the special equipment and statistics. Then we could say clearly about all the effects.” Continue reading for two more videos and additional information.
“So it is too early to market the bacteria, because scientists are yet to understand how exactly it prevents aging. So far, they’ve only been able to determine that the bacteria promotes longevity in mice and fertility in older female mice, but they haven’t uncovered its secret. They still need to understand ‘what keeps the bacteria alive, what is the mechanism preventing the age damages, and how can we use it for our own benefits,” reports Oddity Central.
