things to do with precious bodily fluids

 A couple of posts back I wrote about the dreadfulness that is 'Fresh Cell Therapy'. As practiced by the German clinic offering it, FTC supposedly involves injecting foetal lamb cells into people as a 'treatment' for all sorts of ills. (I used the word 'supposedly' deliberately - the best one can hope is that in fact no lamb tissue actually ever goes near the fluid that's injected.)

Over on Riddled, Smut Clyde has delved more deeply into the history & current use of FTC and related techniques - not a pleasant job, but someone's gotta do it! (Chimp testes as a 'rejuvenation' technique I had heard of. But I really must read The_Adventure_of_the_Creeping_Man.)
