I think there was a Twighlight Zone like this.
How are old people acquiring all this young blood? Hopefully in a sinister manner. Perhaps by acting all helpless and needy so as to induce the most vigorous of the neighborhood younglings to volunteer to shovel their walkway or mow their lawn and when they come inside for their hot chocolate or lemonade reward…
Homer: Marge, please, old people don’t need companionship.
They need to be isolated and studied,

Marge: Homer, would you please stop reading that Ross Perot pamphlet?

I cannot be bothered to find and link to an appropriate gif/clip because I am a bad person.
Because blood transfusions are already approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Ambrosia’s approach has the green-light to continue as an off-label treatment.
This is crazy. I get off-label prescriptions in cases where there are few potential risks… But this? High risk with next-to no evidence of efficacy. Crazy that you could be prescribing this to patients under existing blood transfusion approvals.

Pretty much. Season 2, ep. 22.
It would be kind of nice if this caught on and squashed the trade in endangered animal products, but the market probably wouldn’t behave so neatly.
If immortality means we’re munching on human umbilical cords and sucking the lifeblood out of young folks, I for one aint down with that. I’ll die with dignity thank you very much. Fuuuuuck that.
Of course mssr Thiel and his GOPr ghouls are into this crap. We are just so much meat on the hoof to the ultra rich. Just a slip away from being a batch of Soylent Green. Now with extra The Poors!™
