A 45-year-old actress from Germany has been injecting herself with Bacillus F, a 3.5 million-year-old bacteria from the Siberian permafrost, to stop the effects of aging.
The woman, who goes by the moniker Manoush, describes herself as a “human lab rat” for being the first person in the world to inject herself with Bacillus F, an ancient bacteria whose cells apparently show no signs of aging. She has been doing it for the past three months and claims it is already making her look and feel younger than her age.
Bacillus F was first discovered by Russian scientists in the permafrost of north-western Russia, in 2009, and was then hailed as a “scientific sensation”. The bacteria’s DNA was unlocked in 2015 by a team of researchers who claim that unlike other cells in nature, Bacillus F cells show no signs of aging and could be the key to eternal youth. Manoush has apparently taken these claims to heart and has been injecting the bacteria into her bloodstream.
If you’re wondering how an obscure actress from Munich, Germany, managed to get her hands on the Bacillus F wonder bacteria, she was apparently been getting sufficient samples from the head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, Dr. Anatoli Brouchkov, himself.
As the procedure is experimental, no doctor could inject Manoush with the Bacillus F bacteria without risking to lose their license, so the actress decided to do it herself, under the supervision of a doctor and her friends, in case something bad happens. She has been injecting the strange bacteria into her veins every two weeks, and hopes to up the dosage and frequency soon.
“My skin is as soft as a baby’s bottom,” Manoush recently told Barcroft TV. “You can’t really see it in the photos but if you see me in person you can see there are no marks or blemishes. I have never felt better. I have never slept better, deeper or longer.”
