A 45-year-old man in California spends $1.5 million per year on hard-core anti-aging experiments led by a 29-year-old doctor. Tests show that Bryan Johnson has the “heart of a 37-year-old, the skin of a 28-year-old, and the lung capacity and fitness of an 18-year-old.”
According to Bloomberg, “This year, he’s on track to spend at least $2 million on his body. He wants to have the brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, tendons, teeth, skin, hair, bladder, penis and rectum of an 18-year-old.”
His company, Blueprint, aims to roll out these body hacks to the general public and currently has a waitlist. Johnson said he embarked on this body-hacking project because he was depressed. So is this empowerment or fear of the human experience? You decide.
