While I’m just an amateur in this field, I like to ask general questions
that encompass overall things, and as a matter of
fact I asked myself the same question like Dr. Harold Katcher is
mentioning here: why a transplanted organ from an older patient
is able to perform a lot longer if transplanted in a younger person.
However, I ran into a dilema when I was reading the book by Valter
Pierpaoli (The Melatonin Miracle), where he mention
cross-transplantation of pineal gland from old to young mice and from
young to old mice.
The results were that the young mice that received old pineal gland, had
an accelerated aging process while the old mice receiving a “young”
pineal gland, had a delayed aging
His point was to prove the “aging clock” that is identified by pineal
Any thoughts on this “particular” case?
