PayPal co-founder and prominent Donald Trump donor Peter Thiel has addressed reports that he uses radical life extension therapies that involve blood transfusions using youthful donors.
Speaking at the New York Times Dealbook conference Mr Thiel said:
‘I want to publicly tell you that I’m not a vampire.
On the record – I am not a vampire’.
When questioned further on the matter he denied that he has ever injected himself with a ‘young person’s blood’ – a practice that some believe can have a regenerative effect on older people.
