It seems Austrian scientist are proclaiming that a chemical compound in sperm, (called spermidine what else), might help slow the aging process...

Here's the link...

Will this become the next pick up line, "Hey babe, you wanna live longer?"

Edited to note, it is not the sperm but the semen that is the magic ingredient...

I guess I'm doomed to a short life then. I never touch the stuff.

My wife is fond of it though.

Live longer, and be happier too, according to this one:

Wonderful stuff.

That's been an old wives tale for a while. Though that was as a moisturiser.Which is apparently also trueish...

Which gives you extra leverage, yes?

Jen,

Another good article...

I wonder if a cigarette afterwards dilutes the effect of the semen...

And yet another stupid theory as to why women live longer than men. . . .

I'm thinking a combination of fish oil, sperm, and crushed pearls would be a super elixir.

There's a common thread there, but I can't seem to grasp it...

I'm more perturbed by the fact that grapefruit contains large amounts of spermidine.

All right, citrus farmers...is there something you wanna tell us?

It truly is a great thread title. Funny how seldom we see that on this site, exceptional titles that draw us into a discussion regardless of our interest in the topic.

Well, if grapefruit is acidic, that means spermidine must have an immunity to certain types of acidic compounds.

I wonder if that includes stomach acids...

:roll: Well, shoot, I am actually extremely interested in this topic. But I thought this was in the "story research and experts" forum :( Now I see where we are. Hmm. I don't belong in P&CE.

I was actually looking for a science forum and couldn't find one, so I thought Current Events.

Of course, it could be about Politic's if the Austrians used Bill & Monica as their controlled test subjects...

I might add that I have decided it is now a personal goal of mine to help as many women live longer lives as I can, while I last...

It's the least I can do...as a good samaritan.
