True Sexual Encounters With ETs


The Bible says it in a “civilized way.” But the truth is that since the beginning of time otherworldly entities – no matter how you wish to identify them – have been pillaging and plundering our planet, raping our women, probing our bodies in an ungentlemanly manner, and ostensibly creating a “master race” of alien hybrids by removing the fetuses from artificially inseminated females who have been abducted by UFO occupants around the globe. The aliens then raise the “children” as their own.

The molestation's go on, and, despite the credible nature of a large percentage of such encounters, these sensationalist events are perhaps the most closely guarded secret of the UFOlogical community, for fear that such disclosure will lead to ridicule on the part of skeptics, the scientific community, the media, and a large portion of the general public, who have not been privileged to scrutinize the available data – much of which is presented in the pages of this book for the first time.

THIS IS NOT “FAKE NEWS!” But One Hundred Percent Documented . . .
These are the anal probes, the kidnapping and removal of men, women and couples from the planet for evil, inhuman purposes that often involve molestation and torture.

Some of those abducted have literally been branded and physically scarred for life. “Tattoos” have been placed on their skin, and horrific scratch and claw marks can be found on their chests and stomachs, arms, legs and breasts. Some of these markings can only be seen under florescent lighting; others can be viewed with the naked eye because they are so obvious.
Here are historical as well as some of the most recent cases of copulation with Reptilians, the handsome Nordic “Space Brothers,” the Greys, insectoids, and a host of other intergalactic stalkers – the real invaders from “Mars” – as taken from the files of some of the top researchers of our time. To paraphrase Cindy Lauper’s 80s smash pop single, there are a few space aliens who it seems are coming here because they “just want to have fun!”

Korean War GIs Claimed a UFO Made Them Sick
By Natasha Frost

In May 1951, one year into the Korean War, PFC Francis P. Wall and his regiment found themselves stationed near Chorwon, about 60 miles north of Seoul. As they were preparing to bombard a nearby village with artillery, all of a sudden, the soldiers saw a strange sight up in the hills—like “a jack-o-lantern come wafting down across the mountain.”

What happened after—the pulsing, “attacking” light, the lingering debilitating symptoms—would mystify many for decades to come.

As the GIs watched, the craft made its way down into the village, where the artillery air bursts were starting to explode. “We further noticed that this object would get right into...the center of an airburst of artillery and yet remain unharmed,” Wall later told John P. Timmerman of the Center for UFO Studies in a 1987 interview. Suddenly, the object turned, Wall said. And whereas at first, it had glowed orange, now it was a pulsating blue-green brilliant light. He asked his company commander for permission to fire at the object with armor-piercing bullets from an M-I rifle. As the bullets hit the body of the craft, he recalled, they made a metallic “ding.” The object started behaving still more erratically, shunting from side to side as its lights flashed on and off.

Wall’s recollections of what happened next are stranger still. “We were attacked,” he said, “swept by some form of a ray that was emitted in pulses, in waves that you could visually see only when it was aiming directly at you. That is to say, like a searchlight sweeps around and the segments of light...you would see it coming at you.”

He remembered a burning, tingling sensation sweeping over his body, as if he were being penetrated. The men rushed into underground bunkers and peeped through the windows, watching as the craft hovered above them and then shot off, at a 45-degree angle. “It's that quick,” he said. “It was there and was gone.”

Three days after the incident, the entire company of men was evacuated by ambulance, with special roads cut to haul out those too weak to walk. When they finally received medical treatment, they were found to have dysentery and an extremely high white- blood- cell count. “To me,” says Richard F. Haines, a UFO researcher and former NASA scientist, “they had symptoms that sounded like the effects of radiation.”

Was it an experimental new Soviet weapon?

In the wake of the Korean War, which ended in July 1953, dozens of men have reported seeing similar unidentified flying objects over the course of the 37-month conflict. The craft often resembled flying saucers. According to unofficial reports, as many as 42 were corroborated by additional witness reports—an average of more than one a month in just over three years.

At first, according to Korean war historian Paul M. Edwards, many researchers believed that the sightings were Soviet experiments, based on German technology and foreign research in anti-gravity. “These were supposedly so large they could carry 50 tons of weight and were powered by electromagnetic propulsion,” he writes in Unusual Footnotes to the Korean War. “What was being sighted, it was suggested, were discs the Russians were testing over the Korean skies.” But in the years since the fall of the Soviet UnionIron Curtain came down, a number of Soviet reports of sighting UFOs over Korea have trickled in, discrediting these theories.

Why were there so many UFO sightings throughout the Korean war? Were they the product of thousands of exhausted men under incredible stress—or a sign of something more mysterious? From 1952 until 1986, the United States Air Force ran Project Blue Book, a systematic study into unidentified flying objects and their potential threat to national security. When it was shuttered, in December 1969, the Air Force announced they had found nothing of note, and terminated all activity under the auspices of the study.

But many believe that the project ended abortively, and that there was more work to be done—leading to similar interviews with witnesses and other investigations being done by dozens of volunteers for decades after the project ended. Haines is one of them. He describes himself as a scientist with an open mind, rather than someone with something to prove. “I don't believe in them, I don't not believe in them,” he says. “I'm trying to let the data convince me one way or the other, which is the scientific approach.” But, he says, it’s striking how many accounts there are of similar sightings in the Korean War and other conflicts.

Other explanations?

In the early years of the Cold War, it was often theorized that these crafts might be Soviet or Chinese vessels, with technology unknown to American troops. Haines believes this theory has been conclusively disproved.

“If they were,” he says, “they would have been building those crafts for use in later wars like the Vietnam War, for instance.” The Soviet UFO sightings Edwards describes make it similarly unlikely—as do the impossibly high-tech specifications of some of the sightings. In Wall’s case, for instance, he described a kind of force field taking effect a while after he began shooting, where his bullets simply ricocheted away from the craft.

Haines, for his part, believes the rash of sightings across the Korean war might suggest that something in the universe is especially interested in how human beings behave in the throng of military action. “We tend to be very creative to fight a war,” Haines says, listing off the various sciences and technologies that might come into play in military action. “If you were interested in how another country or another race of people fought their wars, you’d want to collect information on that, wouldn’t you?” He trails off. “That’s one possible explanation. There may be others.”

But the vast majority of UFO sightings—as much as 80 percent—are later found to be totally ordinary phenomena, like clouds or human crafts, rather than anything otherworldly. In Wall’s case, precisely what he saw that day has never been conclusively proven or disproven. Without the testimony of other men in Wall’s regiment, it’s hard to ascertain whether they too had the same strange experience—, even if it can be corroborated that many did get very ill.

Why such long-lasting after-effects?

In the years following the war, Wall lost contact with many of the men in his regiment. After the experience, he remembered his company agreeing that they would not file a report, “because they'd lock every one of us up, and think we were crazy,” he told Timmerman. What made him choose to make a testimony, however, was the lasting after-effects of his illness, including permanent weight loss from 180 pounds to 138, stomach problems and periods of disorientation and memory loss after returning to the United States.

He retired in 1969, at the age of just 42, his daughter Renae Denny says, and spent 30 years out of work, struggling with the after-effects of the war. “Back then they didn’t know the name of it, but I guess you could say it was a form of PTSD,” she says. Over the years, he would tell and retell the tale of his strange UFO sighting. “The story was always the same,” says Denny. “It never changed through the years.” But there was other fallout: He was especially affected by the sounds of airplanes and once knocked his mother and sister to the ground after mistaking them for enemy troops. “I guess he would have flashbacks,” she says.

Wall’s recollections of the UFO sighting were consistent and acute. But whether what he remembered actually happened is harder to prove. Fighting conditions were almost intolerably stressful, and it’s entirely possible that he may have experienced some kind of hallucination, brought on by the terror of the situation, where he regularly feared for his life. It might also have been a moment of feverish delirium: Even the raised white-blood cell count that surprised army doctors, and Haines, is consistent with many of the bacterial infections which might also cause severe dysentery—as are hallucinations. In a later interview with Haines, Wall described how he had discussed what he saw with some 25 other men—but none ever came forward or could later be traced.

In 2002, British researchers demonstrated a link between UFO sightings and Cold War hysteria—and pointed out how the number of sightings had nosedived as radar improved. “That cannot be a coincidence,” David Clarke told the Guardian. “Those early confirmations were just a product of a primitive radar system.” The flurry of UFO sightings Haines describes may have been the dual effect of these two threats: a potentially world-destroying war on the horizon, and the incredible pressure of being in the military.

Wall had experiences in those years in Korea that would scar him until his death in 1999. One night, Denny says, he managed to make his way through a pitch-dark minefield, praying for his life as he went. Others who made the same journey were not so fortunate. “When he went in [to the war],” she says, “he was happy-go-lucky, just a totally different person to when he came out.”

Whether the UFO sightings that Wall and so many other men reported were a product of this personality-altering trauma, or the effects of something requiring much greater investigation, remains a mystery.

The Transhumanists Turning Themselves Into Cyborgs
By Michael Hardy

“Transhumanism” is a relatively new word for the very old belief that humans can transcend the limitations of our mortal bodies, perhaps even mortality itself. In its modern form, the term encompasses a wide variety of techno-utopian ideas ranging from life extension to body hacking to virtual reality and artificial intelligence. With the rapid advance of biotechnology, the term has acquired a new vogue, attracting famous adherents such as futurist Ray Kurzweil.

Swiss photographer Matthieu Gafsou, who has a degree in philosophy from the University of Lausanne and is a member of the MAPS art collective, has spent the past four years traveling the world, shooting prominent transhumanist activists and their work for his series "H+." Because of the lingering stigma attached to the word, many potential subjects, including Kurzweil, declined to participate in the project. Others were only too happy to be photographed. There’s Neil Harbisson, a self-declared cyborg who “corrected” his color blindness by implanting a prosthetic sensor into his skull that converts colors into sound waves; Lukas Zpira, author of the “Body Hacktivism Manifesto”; and Julien Deceroi, who implanted a magnet into his middle finger to give himself an extra sense.

Gafsou also visited a laboratory at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne where Professeur Grégoire Courtine is implanting electrodes into the spines of paralyzed rats to help them walk again. He captured images of the many products being developed to augment our lives, from an anti-aging light therapy mask to NFC/RFID microchips that can be implanted under the skin and used to store data or interface with electronic devices.

Not all transhumanist technologies require self-surgery. “The smartphone is a perfect example of our fusion with technology,” Gafsou says. “It’s always near our body, it’s almost impossible to live or work without, and it gives us new abilities like being able to find out almost anything very easily.” Of course, Gafsou adds, there’s an inevitable tradeoff. “The smartphone has also stolen something from us—our memory, our ability to orient ourselves in space in cities.”

There’s a heated debate in the transhumanist community about whether the ability to transcend mortality will exacerbate economic inequality. Some argue that only the rich will become immortal, while others counter that, like the smartphone, other transhumanist technologies will at first be available only to the wealthy but rapidly come down in price.

Gafsou's not so sure. “In my opinion, the inequality gap will get bigger,” he says. “The smartphone doesn’t require as much infrastructure, whereas for medicine you need not only technology but hospitals and doctors, which is what makes it so costly.” Either way, his images offer an overview of a world that sounds like science fiction, but is bent on turning its far-flung visions into reality.

Hadron Collider Could "Shrink Earth to 330ft"
Earth could be reduced to a dense mass measuring just 330 feet across if particle accelerators set off a catastrophic chain of events, the astronomer royal has warned.

In his latest book, On The Future: Prospects for Humanity, Prof Lord Martin Rees, outlines the existential threats facing the planet, which include climate change, nuclear war and artificial intelligence.

In a chapter addressing whether mankind is doomed, he argues that scientists carrying out experiments which smash atoms together into quarks - such as protons and neutrons - could theoretically destroy humanity.

“Maybe a black hole could form, and then suck in everything around it,” he writes. “The second scary possibility is that the quarks would reassemble themselves into compressed objects called strangelets.

“That in itself would be harmless. However under some hypotheses a strangelet could, by contagion, convert anything else it encounters into a new form of matter, transforming the entire earth in a hyperdense sphere about one hundred metres across.”

Prof Rees said the third risk from particle accelerators, such as the Large Hadron Collider at Cern, was from a ‘catastrophe that engulfs space itself.’

“Empty space - what physicists call the vacuum - is more than just nothingness. It is the arena for everything that happens. It has, latent in it, all the forces and particles that govern the physical world. The present vacuum could be fragile and unstable.

“Some have speculated that the concentrated energy created when particles crash together could trigger a ‘phase transition’ that would rip the fabric of space. This would be a cosmic calamity not just a terrestrial one.”

Prof Rees pointed out that particles of much higher energies than are created in accelerators already collide frequently in the galaxy, without ripping space apart.

However he warns that current understanding at the frontiers of physics is still ‘shaky’ and it would be ‘presumptuous’ to assign a probability to the likelihood of a calamitous, world ending accident.

“Innovation is often hazardous, but if we don’t forgo risks we may forgo benefits,” he said.

“Nevertheless, physicists should be circumspect about carrying out experiments that generate conditions with no precedent, even in the cosmos.

“In the same way, biologists should avoid creation of potentially devastating genetically modified pathogens of large-scale modification of the human germline.

“Many of us are inclined to dismiss these risks as science fiction, but give the stakes they could not be ignored, even if deemed highly improbable.”

Military Mind Control and the UFO Experience

Since the 1960's (and possibly even earlier), some witnesses to UFO events have reported that they were abducted by the alleged alien pilots. In the 1970's these other-worldly kidnappings entered the once-supposed sanctity of the home as people reported being taken from their beds against their will in the middle of the night.

These abduction reports followed a very predictable pattern: a person, or even several people, is taken from their car or home by small, humanoid creatures that are gray in color, have large jet-black eyes and almost no nose, mouth or ears. The abductees are usually given physical exams that are often painful and humiliating. Sometimes there is some form of communication where the abductee is shown images, often apocalyptic in nature. But just as often there is no communication, giving the abductee the impression of being experimented on like a lab animal by unfeeling technicians.

Even more disturbing is the fact that most abductees say that these abductions are not a one-time-only occurrence, as they are taken for experiments numerous times throughout their lives. Frighteningly, children of abductees are also more prone to report abduction experiences of their own more often than children whose parents have not had abductions.

Some researchers have uncovered evidence that some abductees are also being targeted by a group, or groups, that are not from outer space, but from planet Earth. Investigator Helmut Lammer in his Project MILAB has noted that UFO abductions are generally a very strange and complex phenomenon, and that it has gotten even stranger as some UFO abductees have reported that they have also been kidnapped by human military intelligence personnel (MILAB) and taken to hospitals and/or military facilities, some of which are described as being underground.

Very few of the popular books on the subject of UFO abductions have mentioned these experiences. Especially odd is the fact that abductees recall seeing military intelligence personnel together with alien beings, working side by side in these secret facilities. The presence of human military and civilian personnel occupying the same physical reality as alien beings exceeds the mind-sets of the skeptics and the open-minded researchers by several orders of magnitude. The skeptics would rather believe that stories of aliens and military personnel in governmental underground facilities are fabrications designed to elicit attention from conspiracy believers or hallucinations in general.

Researchers in the field of mind control suggest that these cases are evidence that the whole UFO abduction phenomenon is staged by the intelligence community as a cover for their illegal experiments. The open-minded researchers who are trying to gain respect for abduction research ignore these stories, since they represent only a minor fraction of the cases in their files. Abduction cases involving reports of being taken by the military as well as alien beings are very important for two reasons:

1. If the UFO community has evidence that a covert military intelligence task force is involved in the abduction phenomenon, we would know that this phenomenon represents a matter of national security.

2. The alleged military involvement in the abduction phenomenon could be evidence that the military uses abductees for mind control experiments as test-targets for microwave weapons. Moreover, the military could be monitoring and even kidnapping abductees for information gathering purposes during, before and after a UFO abduction.

In recent years, various information on remote mind control technology has filtered into the conspiracy research community through such publications such as Conspiracy Journal, as well as a Finnish gentleman by the name of Martti Koski and his booklet "My Life Depends On You." Over the last decade, Koski has been sharing his horrifying tale, documenting the discovery of rampant brain tampering committed upon himself and countless others.

The perpetrators of these evil doings allegedly include the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), The CIA and Finnish Intelligence, among various other intelligence agencies. At one point during a mind control programming episode, the "doctors" operating on Koski identified themselves as "aliens from Sirius." Apparently, these "doctors" were attempting to plant a screen memory to conceal their true intentions.

What this suggests is a theory that alien abductions were a cover for MK-ULTRA mind control experiments perpetrated by secret intelligence agencies. According to author Walter Bowart in the revised edition of "Operation Mind Control," one alleged mind control victim said that in the late 70's the victim had been the recipient of a mock alien abduction, the intention of which was to create a screen memory that would conceal the actual mind control programs enacted on the victim.  The subject in this instance claimed to have seen a young child dressed in a small alien costume, similar in appearance to the aliens in Steven Spielberg's movie ET. 

None of this, of course, dismisses outright the theory that UFOs are alien spacecraft. Nevertheless, its implications are staggering when one considers the impact and subsequent commercialization of the alien abduction phenomenon, and how it has reshaped the belief systems and psyches of millions upon millions of the planet's inhabitants, in essence creating a new paradigm on the reality of visitors from other planets that prior to thirty years ago was virtually non-existent.

This takes us back to Helmut Lammer and his Project MILAB.  His studies indicate that MILAB abductees are harassed by dark, unmarked helicopters that fly around their houses. Lammer has discovered that the helicopter activity associated with UFO abductions has increased from the eighties to the present day. Dan Wright has ten cases in the MUFON Transcription Project files where helicopters were seen flying in the area of the abductee's home within hours of an alleged UFO abduction. Lammer has also found that many abduction researchers in North America have, on average, about three helicopter cases connected with UFO abductions in their files.

Most abductees report interaction with military intelligence personnel after the helicopters begin to appear. Debbie Jordan reports, for instance, in a side note of her book "Abducted!" that she was stunned by an alleged friend and taken to a kind of hospital where she was examined by a medical doctor. This doctor removed an implant from her ear.

Lammer reports that MILABs involve the following elements: Dark, unmarked helicopter activity, the appearance of strange vans or buses outside the houses of abductees, exposure to disorienting electromagnetic fields, drugging, and transport by a helicopter, bus or truck to an unknown building or an underground military facility. Usually after the military kidnappings, there are physical after effects such as grogginess and sometimes nausea.

MILABs could be evidence that a secret military intelligence task force has been operating in North America since the early eighties, and is involved in the monitoring and kidnapping of alleged UFO abductees. They monitor the houses of their victims, kidnap and possibly implant them with military devices shortly after a UFO abduction experience. It appears that they are searching for possible alien implants as well. Their gynecological interest in female abductees could be explained if they are searching for alleged alien-hybrid embryos. One thing is certain, this task force and the people who are behind these kidnappings are using advanced mind control technology which is currently being tested illegally on individuals who have nothing to do with UFO abductions.

Woman Says ‘Werewolf’ Attacked Her
A woman from São Paulo, Brazil claims that she was attacked by a werewolf. According to the victim’s account, the creature looked like a big dog. Police is looking for a suspect that may have used a costume to attack the girl.

The inhabitants of São Sepé, Rio Grande do Sul, [Brazil] have one more reason to fear Friday the 13th. Besides the bad luck and the strange happenings during the day, a ‘werewolf’ is supposedly at large. One of the possible victims, a 20-year-old, recorded her complaint in the police.

According to the police, Kelly Martins Becker claims to have been attacked in the night of January 28 by an animal that looked like a big dog, that was standing on its back feet and walked as if it were a man. She made a sketch of the creature.

According to the complaint, the creature scratched the face and arms of the victim. The police informed that Kelly underwent medical examination, where the wounds were confirmed. Officers also claim they will investigate if someone is using a werewolf costume to scare people. No suspect was arrested until Friday.
Cases similar to the one from São Sepé were recorded. In the rural area of Tauá, Ceará, locals asked for police help in July 2008, scared with sightings of an individual “half man and half wolf” that was stealing sheep and breaking into houses.
At the time, the police investigated the case, suspecting that a gang was using costumes to scare the locals and commit the crimes. The case, called ‘the midnight mystery’, then became a joke in the city.

In April 2008, some inhabitants of Santana do Livramento, Rio Grande do Sul, also had their moments of terror with the attacks of the ‘Man in the Black Cape’. With no solid evidence about the creature’s sightings, the police archived the records as folklore.”
We translated the reports about last year’s incidents, and this one even has a sketch of the creature. It’s relevant to note that São Sepé, the current werewolf-scared city, is near Santana do Livramento, last year’s scared city. Both being small rural cities. The photo above comes from Zero Hora, and the G1 link above has another photo of Kelly Becker and her sketch of the creature.

If you are a diligent Fortean, you will associate this series of reports with popular panics around the world and history, from the more recent Monkey Man in India (c. 2001) going as far back as the Spring-Heeled Jack in England (c. 1837 and onwards).

And those are just the more obviously similar and famous cases. So similar they are almost identical, with only a couple of differences, like the height of the Indian and the Brazilian creatures. Does this make them real?

Curiously, the more you acquaint yourself with numerous similar cases, the more an alternative explanation that sounds terrible at first looks more and more acceptable. It’s mass sociogenic illness. Or, as it’s popularly known, mass hysteria.

It’s a damned expression, due to no doubt much abuse. Robert Bartholomew is the name to look for if you still dread that term. See: Protean nature of mass sociogenic illness – From possessed nuns to chemical and biological terrorism fears.

We shouldn’t keep abusing the term and tagging everything as “mass hysteria” – criminals could be using costumes, and it’s not impossible that an unknown violent bipedal creature is lurking those places. Only highly improbable, the more so as no solid evidence ever comes up.

And the one important thing about ‘mass sociogenic illness” is that though the creatures may not be real, the victims are. They may also be highly educated, intelligent people.

Ouija Board Sparks Hysteria at School in Peru

In a shocking incident, a group of 30 students reportedly suffered ‘hysteria’ after playing with a Ouija board at a boarding school in Peru.

The daughter of a teacher brought a book of black magic and the Ouija board to the school in San Jode de Saramuro in the Loretoregion, according to local media reports.

According to reports, she allegedly encouraged fellow students to play with the Ouija board.

Disturbing footage purportedly shows one of the students convulsing and screaming as others try to restrain her, according to local media.

'It's all your fault!' the girl is heard screaming in the clip.

Apart from the girl, around 27 other students were also affected in a similar manner, local media reports claim.

Teacher who arrived to the classroom after hearing the strange noises, reportedly saw students lying on the ground, incoherent and suffering from spasms.

Panicked parents are said to have taken their children to evangelical churches in the community in a bid to help their children amid fears they had been possessed.

The school suspended classes for a week, local media said, but the students involved have returned to school.

Clinic for "Young Blood" Opening Soon
By Erin Brodwin 

To startup founder and Stanford Medical graduate Jesse Karmazin, blood is the next big government-approved drug.

Karmazin recently launched Ambrosia Medical – a startup that fills the veins of older people with fresh blood from young donors – in the hopes that the procedure will help conquer ageing by rejuvenating the body's organs.

The company plans to open its first clinic in New York City by the end of this year, Karmazin told Business Insider.

In 2017, Ambrosia enrolled people in the first US clinical trial designed to find out what happens when the veins of adults are filled with blood from the young.

While the results of that study have not yet been made public, Karmazin told Business Insider the results were "really positive."

Because blood transfusions are already approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Ambrosia's approach has the green-light to continue as an off-label treatment.

There appears to be significant interest: since putting up its website last week, the company has received roughly 100 inquiries about how to get the treatment, David Cavalier, Ambrosia's chief operating officer, told Business Insider.

That led to the creation of the company's first waiting list, Cavalier said.

"So many people were reaching out to us that we wanted to make a simple way for them to be added to the list," Cavalier said.

With that in mind, Cavalier and Karmazin are currently scouting a number of potential clinic locations in New York City and organising talks with potential investors. They hope to open the facility by the end of this year.

"New York would be the flagship location," Karmazin said.

The first clinical trial of its kind

Because blood tranfusions are already approved by federal regulators, Ambrosia does not need to demonstrate that its treatment carries significant benefits before offering it to customers.

So far, the company has already infused close to 150 patients ranging in age from 35 to 92 with the blood of young donors, Cavalier said. Of those, 81 were participants in their clinical trial.

The trial, which involved giving patients 1.5 litres (1.58 quarts) of plasma from a donor between the ages of 16 and 25 over two days, was conducted with physician David Wright, who owns a private intravenous-therapy center in Monterey, California.

Before and after the infusions, participants' blood was tested for a handful of biomarkers, or measurable biological substances and processes that are thought to provide a snapshot of health and disease.

People in the trial paid US$8,000 to participate. The company hasn't settled on a commercial pricetag for the procedure, Karmazin said.

"The trial was an investigational study. We saw some interesting things and we do plan to publish that data. And we want to begin to open clinics where the treatment will be made available," Cavalier said.

Karmazin added that the trial showed the treatment to be very safe.

"The safety profile was essentially perfect, or as good as plasma transfusions are," Karmazin said.

Young blood and anti-ageing: Are there any benefits?

Karmazin is right about the safety of blood transfusions and their capacity to save lives.

A simple blood transfusion, which involves hooking up an IV and pumping the plasma of a healthy person into the veins of someone who's undergone surgery or been in a car crash, for example, is one of the safest life-saving procedures available.

Every year in the US, nurses perform about 14.6 million of them, which means about 40,000 blood transfusions happen on any given day.

But as far as young blood is concerned – and its alleged potential to fight ageing – the science remains unclear.

"There's just no clinical evidence [that the treatment will be beneficial], and you're basically abusing people's trust and the public excitement around this," Stanford University neuroscientist Tony Wyss-Coray, who led a 2014 study of young plasma in mice, recently told Science magazine.

Karmazin is still optimistic. He got the idea for his company as a medical student at Stanford and an intern at the National Institute on Ageing, where he watched dozens of traditional blood transfusions performed safely.

"Some patients got young blood and others got older blood, and I was able to do some statistics on it, and the results looked really awesome," Karmazin told Business Insider last year.

"And I thought, this is the kind of therapy that I'd want to be available to me."

So far, no one knows if young blood transfusions can be reliably linked to a single health benefit in people.

Karmazin said "many" of the roughly 150 people who've received the treatment have noted benefits that include renewed focus, better memory and sleep, and improved appearance and muscle tone.

But it's tough to quantify these benefits before the study findings are made public. There's also the possibility that simply travelling to a lab in Monterey and paying to enroll in the study could have made patients feel better.

Studies in mice don't necessarily translate to results in people

Karmazin was inspired to create his blood infusion treatment after seeing seeing several mouse studies that involve parabiosis, a 150-year-old surgical technique that connects the veins of two living animals. (The word comes from the Greek words para, or "beside," and bio, or "life.")

Irina Conboy, a bioengineering professor at the University of California at Berkeley who pioneered one of these parabiosis studies in mice in 2005, found evidence that the exchange had done something positive for the health of the older mouse who received the blood of the younger mouse.

But the animals weren't simply swapping blood – the older rodent was also reaping the benefits of the younger one's more vibrant internal organs and circulatory system.

In other words, the researchers couldn't say for sure whether it was the blood itself that was doing the apparent reviving or if the fact that the animals were linked in other ways was responsible for those perceived benefits.

In 2016, Conboy and her team ran another study to see what would happen if they merely exchanged the rodents' blood without connecting their bodies in any way.

They found that while the muscle tissue in the older mice appeared to benefit slightly from the younger blood, they still couldn't say for sure that these modest benefits were coming from the young blood itself.

After all, the experiment had also fundamentally changed the older mouse blood by diluting it.

"The effects of young blood on old tissue seems to be rejuvenating; however, there is no concrete evidence that young blood is what is causing the change in results. It may very well be the dilution of old blood," Ranveer Gathwala, a UC Berkeley stem-cell researcher in Conboy's lab who co-authored the 2016 paper, previously told Business Insider.

Nevertheless, Karmazin remains hopeful that the benefits he said he's witnessing are the result of young blood transfusions.

"I'm really happy with the results we're seeing," he said.
