"Soylent Red" is people!" (a tale of mice and men)

Huffington Post reports about a science experiment with great promise for the future and with implications for the downtrodden and oppressed.

If Mickey Mouse is feeling his age at 86, scientists may have found just the tonic: the blood of younger mice.

Older mice got stronger, exercised longer and performed better mentally after they were injected with blood from young mice, or even just with a substance that's more abundant in younger blood.

Someday, if more research goes well, this may lead to a way to treat some infirmities of old age in people. In the meantime, scientists have a warning for do-it-yourselfers. (source)

Impoverished Third World countries tend to have a much higher ration of young to old people than in the First World countries. This study implies an unexpected dual benefit: Help older Americans age more slowly and get rid of those restive anti-American Third World kids.

So we're all going to stay alive by sucking the blood of babies.  I'm cool with that. 

We'll stay young by turning to vampirism.

The future. 

And yet, "ration" still works in a way. LOL

Freudian slip?

Who needs O2 cafe's, pot smoking, or a very young wife, when you could just 'get your new teeth on!', with of course a portable blood tester as a cell phone app!

So is this 'substance' a plasma component, or a blood sample with 'blond DNA'?
