Sometimes things are taken a little too far!

Bryan Johnson, a biohacker tech tycoon, has admitted that he won’t ever swap plasma with his teenage son again because ‘no benefits were identified.

Johnson has been trying to turn back the hands of time for some time.

The tech tycoon spends $2 million on a strict daily schedule that is managed by a group of 30 doctors.

He told the BBC: “My left ear is 64, my fitness tests say I’m 18, my heart is 37, my diaphragm strength is 18.

“I playfully say I’m trying to become like, an 18-year-old. My son is 17, so I always tease him and say, ‘When I grow younger, I wanna be like you’.”

He works out every day, follows a strict vegan diet with 1,977 calories per day, skips breakfast, and takes more than 100 supplements every day to get those results.

The 45-year-old, however, announced last week via Twitter that he was ending the blood exchanges with his son.

Having previously had blood transfusions from a stranger, Johnson decided to undertake the same procedure this time with himself Richard, 70, and son Talmage, 17.

The group went to Dallas, where Richard and Talmage had a litre of their blood extracted and divided into two batches of plasma, red, white, and platelet cells.

Johnson had Talmage’s plasma injected into his veins, and Richard received Johnson’s plasma.

Johnson, however, has stated that he has ended the study because he has saw “no benefit” from the treatment.

“Young plasma exchange may be beneficial for biologically older populations or certain conditions. Does not in my case stack benefit on top of my existing interventions.

“Alternative methods of plasma exchange or young plasma fractions hold promise.

“My father’s results still pending.”

Claims that plasma from younger bodies can improve the health of older generations have been around for some time.

Studies on the subject have already been conducted on mice, but experts say the findings are inconclusive and suggest trying it on humans would be fairly dangerous.

Charles Brenner, a biochemist at City of Hope National Medical Center in Los Angeles, said: “We have not learned enough to suggest this is a viable human treatment for anything.”

Adding: “To me, it’s gross, evidence-free and relatively dangerous.”

Johnson started his anti-aging initiative, which he called Project Blueprint, after selling his business, Braintree Payment Solutions, a provider of payment processing solutions, to eBay for $800 million in cash.

Additionally, he went through a divorce and put on 60lb (27kg) while living only on pizza and cookies.

He acknowledged that this caused him to experience melancholy, suicidal thoughts, and violent mood swings, and that it took him years to rid himself of what felt like a “internal demon.”

He also went through a divorce and gained 60lb (27kg) on a diet of cookies and pizza.

This led to depression, suicidal thoughts and violent mood swings, with him admitting it was like a ‘internal demon’ that took him ‘years to remove’.

He continued: “We are quite literally mad as a species. We are addicted to junk food, to alcohol, drugs, cigarettes.

“All these things which make us feel bad. We are at war with ourselves. How can we hope to save the planet, to survive as a species, if we can’t make peace with our own bodies?”

Johnson added: “I had done a lousy job of looking after myself so I thought, what if I let my body decide how it wants to live? 

“What if data, not emotions, managed how I eat and sleep?”
