What we now call ‘intergenerational fairness’ has suffered a lot lately and it’s not about to be improved by the news that the Baby Boomers are sucking the blood of the young.
Although in fairness – they are only after the plasma.
In Monterey California a new startup has emerged offering transfusions of human plasma: 1.5 litres a time – pumped in across two days – harvested uniquely from young adults.
Ambrosia – the vampiric startup concerned – is run by a 32-year-old doctor called Jesse Karmazin – who bills $8,000 (£6,200) a pop for participation in what he has dubbed a “study”.
So far he has 600 clients – with a median age of 60.
The blood is collected from local blood banks – then separated and combined – it takes multiple donors to make one package.
