Blood is among the very essential constituent of the human body for its better performance. It delivers all the vital nutrients and oxygen to all parts of the body. So one can understand the level of difficulty if any problem arises with it.
Blood transfusion is a process that replaces the blood that is lost because of a surgery, or during an injury or if the body is not making enough blood. If a person is going through anaemia, sickle cell disease, a bleeding disorder like haemophilia, or cancer. Blood transfusions can be a lifesaver, in very critical conditions.
This whole topic raises many questions and debates in the field of medical science. One of them is how blood is related to ageing. There was a saying that in this world nothing can be certain except for death, but there is also one thing that is inevitable, ageing.
According to some studies, our cells are not designed to age, in fact, ageing is a defect of our gene. Regardless, it is 100 per cent that every human age after a certain time.
If we look in history before the 19th century, ageing was associated with the wisdom, wellness and worth. But as we entered in the 90s people started to minimise their sign of growing years, to an unimaginable extent. Blood is a potent symbol of life and death. The tales for the search of eternal youth has always been linked to this incredible fluid in literature, legend, magic and medicine.
But there are some recent studies that have claimed that transfusion of blood from teenagers or young people can delay the ageing process for a very long period. There are many experiments done to check the result of youth blood on age, and the effects are rather positive than imagine. There are several companies that are collecting the blood and plasma from the young donating patients.
Although the cost is too high, to make it viral in commoners. But one question will always remain on the peak, where does this claim stand or it is just another prediction in the ever-changing field of science? The answers are yet to reveal.
