Summary: One man is self-experimenting with DIY gene therapy on the theory that an HGH-boosting gene implant might rejuvenate him without side effects. HGH (human growth hormone) is easily boosted by plasmid-based gene therapy and is already practiced in livestock. Moreover, as the theory goes, implanting cells which generate growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) mimics the bodies natural processes of… Continue reading "Body Hacking – Man Rejuvenating with DIY Gene Therapy"
