Title: Can you extract the beneficial parts of Laron Syndrome?
Post by: nudephil on 28/02/2020 15:42:40
Rikhil would like to know:

Is it possible to extract the dwarfism component of Laron Syndrome and keep the beneficial components of it - such as longer lifespan and immunity to cancer - and mass produce a serum for everyone to reap the benefits? If yes, then has it started?

What do you think?
