He spends huge sums of money to look 18 years old! A famous American billionaire exchanges blood plasma with his seventy- year-old son and father

Bloomberg said that businessman Brian Johnson, who said he spends two million dollars a year to look 18 years old, is exchanging blood plasma with his 70-year-old father and his 17-year-old son.

According to the agency, the American billionaire Johnson , 45, showed up at a health services clinic near Dallas with his 70-year-old father, Richard, and his son, Talmage. Tri-generation blood plasma.

And his son Talmage starts first, so they draw a liter of his blood, which a device divides into liquid plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets, and then Brian undergoes the same operation, as well as an additional procedure to enter his son’s plasma into his veins.

Then it is finally his father Richard’s turn to receive Brian’s plasma, after the blood. drawn from him has given way to it.

And the blood exchange process is not new to Johnson, as he has been going to the Dallas clinic for months on end to receive plasma, not from a member of his family, but from an unknown young donor. Johnson carefully screens the donor to make sure he has an ideal body mass, and lives a healthy, disease-free life.

Johnson’s reputation in the tech world precedes him as a well-known entrepreneur and former president of Braintree, the digital payments company that owned Venmo. His entrepreneurial spirit shone through when he established his neurotechnology company, Kernel, which proved to be highly successful. However, his latest endeavor, Project Blueprint, has shifted his focus exclusively to improve his physical fitness.

And Bloomberg reported last January that Johnson spends millions of dollars annually on medical diagnosis and treatment, along with a careful regimen of eating, sleeping and exercising to see if it is possible to slow down the aging process, and perhaps stop it completely. 

Johnson has a team of doctors helping him with that. Within the framework of the Blueprint project, he publishes the bulk of the mechanisms he uses and their results, in the hope that others can evaluate and benefit from his work.

Plasma injections have been a part of traditional medicine, treating multiple issues such as liver disease, burns, and blood disorders. In the COVID-19 pandemic, plasma exchange emerged as a primary treatment method. Recovered patients’ plasma was administered to COVID-19 patients, resulting in the creation of antibodies for the virus. However, the World Health Organization recommended against its application in 2021.

The idea of ​​using plasma for rejuvenation gained momentum after experiments in which scientists literally paired old mice with young ones, sharing circulatory systems. Old mice showed improvements in cognitive function, metabolism and bone structure.

Some studies have also demonstrated that frequent blood donation has positive health effects. Because the body gets rid of old blood and produces new cells and blood.

Human studies in this area are scarce. Scientists and enthusiasts only had data from studies conducted on mice, which many researchers consider inconclusive. 

While some longevity researchers warn against selective plasma transfusions among healthy people, Charles Brenner, a biochemist at City of Hope National Medical Center in Los Angeles, says, “We haven’t learned enough to confirm that this is a viable human treatment.” Personally, I see it as unsubstantiated and relatively dangerous.”

However, Johnson’s medical team has agreed to adopt the method as a potential treatment for cognitive decline and possibly to treat Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

The so-called “boy blood” stigma attached to life-extending plasma transfusions does not allow for a broad discussion of this topic. Combined with the obvious vampire vibe surrounding the process, these methods can seem eclectic and unsavory. 

In most cases, the wealthiest person receives the plasma from a much younger and less wealthy person. Plasma donors typically receive about $100 in gift cards for an operation that costs about $5,500.
