IImmortality may be here soon, according to a scientist in Russia. Anatoli Brouchkov, head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, claims that injecting 3.5-million-year-old Siberian bacteria into himself has boosted his health and energy. He believes its DNA and genes can contain the cure to aging.
“I started to work longer, I’ve never had a flu for the last two years. But it still need the experiments. We have to work out how this bacteria prevents aging. I think that is the way this science should develop. What is keeping that mechanism alive? And how can we use it for our own benefits?”
The bacteria, called Bacillus F, was found in ancient Siberian permafrost. Scientists have decoded the DNA and are in the process of understanding which genes give the bacteria such extraordinary properties of longevity. Isolating the actual mechanism could have a huge impact on future advances in health.
“I would say, there exist [in the world] immortal bacteria, immortal beings. They cannot die, to more precise, they can protect themselves,” he said. “Our cells are unable to protect themselves from damage, these bacteria cells are able to protect themselves.
