Stem Cell Rejuvenation

Mya Brewer and Alexis Greene

What is Stem Cell Rejuvenation?

Rejuvenation is similar to life extension, but not quite. Life extension strategies often study the causes of aging and try to oppose those causes in order to slow aging. Rejuvenation is the problem of aging and consequently requires a different strategy, namely repair of the damage that is associated with aging or replacement of damaged tissue with new tissue. Stem Cell Rejuvenation requires the stem cells from different areas to be placed in the area of your choice.
