Artificial Blood

It has long been rumored that the day when we will create artificial blood is not far away. Whenever it does, the human being will never be the same again. Your blood is the first thing that gets affected by a host of diseases ranging from high sugar to pressure all the way to terminal illnesses. Your blood is the carrier of in your body, the reason, the first things you do if afflicted is to get a blood test done.

Imagine if you could replace your blood with artificial blood, it would significantly reduce or eliminate illness as you could merely transfuse new blood and renew or discard the old. You could then easily live to be two or even five hundred years old.

A British firm is developing what might turn out to be the first ever “real artificial human blood” (pardon my oxymoron). The artificial blood acts like real blood and is a carrier of hemoglobin or red blood cells. It can therefore freely mix with the rest of your blood without being rejected or attacked by your immune system. Apparently, it does not carry any risk of prior contamination or disease as it will be produced in sterile conditions.

Development of artificial blood that does not get rejected by your body is only the first step. Once working, you could quickly add synthetic elements to it that would work to reverse the effects of aging, repair organs, heal internal wounds, remove plaque that has built up, reduce the symptoms of depression, remove toxins and restore eyesight. The possibilities are endless. Your body would then become a carrier that a good Doctor could tailor at will and ensure that you hale and hearty at the age of seven hundred and fifty-two. Perhaps a creaking bone or two?
