Will future therapies like the ones AgeX is working on, involving injecting generic pluripotent stem cells that have been stripped of attributes that would cause the receiver’s immune system to kill them or create inflammation…change certain things about you over time as they begin to dominate?


Will that kind of change a lot of things about your personal genetically-driven metabolism over time? For example if you had certain genetic advantages for athleticism, like ideal hematocrit levels for endurance sports…or other things like that, which only your specific genetics would dicate, wouldn’t that start to change?

These donated stem cells will have someone else’s genome right? So you’ll slowly become like this universal genome person.

Granted over time, no doubt we’re going to tailor a more and more ideal genome for these stem cells, so that we can all have good health due to the genetics of these stem cells we are acquiring.
