A 45-year-old American entrepreneur named Bryn Johnson who has dedicated himself body and soul to finding a way to stay young does not give up on the passing of time. Bryan Johnson was the founder of Braintree, a company specializing in mobile and web payment systems for e-commerce companies. Braintree acquired Venmo in 2012 for $26.2 million, and the entire stock was subsequently acquired by PayPal for more than $800 million. Since then, Bryan has devoted himself maddeningly to the search for the elixir of life.
The latest stunt was nothing short of over the top: Johnson actually decided to inject himself with a liter of blood taken from his 17-year-old son. A technique that, according to him, could ensure him a youthful appearance forever. An eccentric choice to say the least, not only for the health risks, but also for the decidedly high expectations.

As Bloomberg reports, the 45-year-old brought together his 17-year-old son, Talmage, and his 80-year-old father, Richard, to study the generational switch that took place in their family. Last April, the three went to Resurgence Wellness, a futuristic-looking medical center located in Arlington, Texas, United States. Medical staff at the facility took a liter of blood from the 17-year-old, which was then separated into parts, with the plasma being re-infused into his father Bryan. The man then did the same for the 70-year-old parent. Obviously, there is currently no scientific evidence that this kind of treatment has any effect, indeed, according to some researchers, there is a risk of side effects, even very serious ones.
