New Science Trial Aims To Bring Dead People Back To Life

'Another step towards to reversal of death in our lifetime'

An American biotech company is planning a groundbreaking trial attempting to regenerate the brains of dead people, meaning taxes may be soon be left as the only guarantee in life.

'The ReAnima Project' has been given ethical permission to test twenty patients declared clinically dead from brain injury, to see if their central nervous system can be revived. 

The participants have all been kept alive on life support and will be monitored to see if their brains show signs of regenerating when injected with stem cells and scanned with lasers to stimulate the brain.

More amazing still, the brain cell regeneration is thought to be able to erase their history and begin again - a bit like animals who regrow limbs, though it may prove a slightly complicated way to go about that 'new year new you' idea.

CEO of research facility Bioquark Inc, Ira Pastor commented:

"This represents the first trial of its kind and another step towards the eventual reversal of death in our lifetime."

Wow. 

The project also aims to investigate degenerative brain conditions, said Dr Sergei Paylian, Founder, President, and Chief Science Officer of Bioquark Inc.

"Through our study, we will gain unique insights into the state of human brain death, which will have important connections to future therapeutic development for other severe disorders of consciousness, such as coma, and the vegetative and minimally conscious states, as well as a range of degenerative CNS conditions, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease."

So have we, well ahead of schedule, really devised the key to some sort of eternal life? We won't have long to wait, the trial is hoping to see results within the first two or three months.
