Nectar of the Gods?

Merriam-Webster defines ambrosia as "the food of the Greek and Roman gods." If that's still the case today,  we have questions.

Why's that, Henry?

Well, because of this (apparently legit) item sent in by FoIB Holly R:

"A controversial startup that charges $8,000 to fill your veins with young blood to 'defeat aging' now claims to be up and running in 5 cities across the US"


The company was started about 3 years now, and is now up and, er, beating well, as they now boast a wait-list. And since its process is considered an off-label use of established medical procedure, it's apparently 'kosher' as far as the FDA is concerned.

How effective is it? Well,there's scant scientific proof of its efficacy (and by "scant" we mean "next to none"); on the other hand, what's the harm?

Tune in again in 2075 for an update.

Oh, and definitely go for the brand name, not the generic,and no word yet on whether or no it's HSA-eligible, but one doubts it's insurable (after all, what carrier actually has a heart?).
