Anatoli Brouchkov, Russian scientist believes he has found the secret of eternal youth: he injected an old bacterium 3.5 million years found in the ice in Siberia. Since then, he affirms feel in better shape and not be sick for two years.
This bacterium, called Bacillus F, was discovered in 2009 in the frozen soils of Yakutia in Siberia, where it would be housed for more than 3.5 million years. After testing the bacteria from flies and mice, Brouchkov, head of department geocryology (ie the study of glaciers) at the University of Moscow, decided that the best way to prove the effectiveness of this body was still to be injected.
“I started to work longer and I did not catch flu for two years,” he said in an interview at Siberian Times . Without it is proved formally it is a bacterium of the effect on his body.
However, the exact science that it can not comment on the side effects of this experience. “Maybe there was some side effects but will require special medical equipment to identify,” he said. “Of course, such experiments should be conducted in clinical, with special equipment and statistics. Then we can clearly define all the effects.”
According to Dr. Brouchkov, this experience is not at all dangerous. He explained that when the ice melts, the Bacillus F are regularly released into the environment. “The local population, the Yakuts, is exposed to these cells, present in their water for a long time, and seems to live longer than other people.”
Dr. Brouchkov and his team say they want to continue their research and experiences on this bacteria, “We need to know how this bacterium is able to stop aging As can it still be alive after all these years and how can we benefit.? . ”
