Will you inject the things listed here if it does make you younger and thus immortal? Actual medical advice should be taken from a doctor. This is a theoretical post.

I drink plenty of water energized with positive intent that made me look younger and much more healthy in every way. Positive intent gives life, negative intent kills. I'm sure this water made me immortal. If you believe it you can achieve it. Water is very healing if it's pure water.

You can even gain super powers from being purified by pure water.

I have serious reservations about any plan that starts with "inject yourself with everything on this list".

Ionno, I sort of need a confirmation about whether it works/or not. I don't know how they came up with this list either. But this is where I arrive at through my research.

Not everything, just the bottom one, the top one is for lab rat

So being Immortal means paying taxes forever?
No Thanks
It's a short happy life with a tax free death for me

Do I want to become a GMO to gain immortality? Add genes for growing a furry tail and some animal ears then I might think about it.

nope, I've seen enough in this short life to not be too certain if I could maintain the "living forever" notion. however a longer life to enjoy life, but like Altered Carbon stated, a person could live forever and never see and do everything. so, I'd be happy to live for a couple hundred years with brain intact. after all what's the point of living longer if you have dementia or something.

No, it won't make you younger or immortal. These are simply cells that through excessive alteration were set in a state that is more unspecific. This means they are able to differentiate into a number of different cells (although not every type of cell, this would be ominpotent), which makes them pluripotent.
In reality, if you would inject the chemicals needed for inducing pluripotenty (sox etc) it would damage your body. To get from differentiated cells to pluripotent cells you have to treat the differentiated cells with a specific protocol of different chemical factors, not just willy-nilly injecting it.
iPS cells are an interesting idea, but it is a long way from actually being able to simply be used for any such thing you speak of.
