Theoretical scenario: The information about this lab is not disclosed nor is its technology. You know the place of the lab from a friend or a source. You go there, they offer you a pill that makes you young again not knowing its effect and success rate at the cost of 100 dollars for the experiment. Would you take it?

Personal conclusion: Fred lives until 90 years old on the verge of dying. The only lead he got is this lab. He goes there and the lab offers him a pill to make him young again at the cost of 100 dollars, he would take it. Before Fred reaches 90 years old or not on the verge of dying, no, I'll take the public disclosed medication to be young again.

I would be too suspicious and wouldn't take it initially. I'd probably wait until I was old before taking it if I had that option, like you.

I wouldn't take it without knowing of any possible side effects. Does it help treat the maladies of old age, or does it only make you appear youthful without restoring vitality to your cells and other body structures?

Right, it should successfully restore cells and body structures, theoretically.

How young will you become if you take one? How long are the effects? Do you have to take it regularly, or is it a one-time deal?

How young, hmm, not sure, I'd say maybe turn you from 80 into 40. The effects last forever, it simply reset your age to 40 assuming it works and other aging symptoms does not reappear. You take it once every week or every month, the dosage would be potent, but you can't overdose it, until you hit age 40, then you stop using the drug.


P.S Again, cell dedifferentiation using cell signaling molecules is not confirmed, so I can't promise you as of now

This is the chart which I worship. The human pathyways are on the bottom beginning with the signaling molecule BMP4, I dunno if they tested this though in an actual experiment

P.S Japanese have got it all worked out, they are geniuses

The older they get... the more likely I would be to recommend it to friends and family. Same for taking it myself but... I wouldn't want to outlive the people I cared about.

No. That's how you end up getting sold for parts on the black market.


EDIT; Or worse.

Nah. If the only thing that happens upon failure is death, then yes, since depression and all makes it a win-win (either stay young or die so cool). But I don't want anything that might fuck me up AND have to keep living with that

Nope, who wants to possibly reverse their age?
