The Truth Behind Santa Rosa Institute's Latest Coverup
By now, many of you have read the latest press release from the Santa Rosa Institute (if you haven't seen it, you can find it here). The release trumpets the success of the drug Genuflex in reversing the effects of aging in mice. Now, for a reality check. Here's what they didn't tell you about the mice that got daily Genuflex injections:
The mice were pronouncedly more aggressive. Whenever handlers approached them, they hissed and snapped their jaws, which is very uncharacteristic behavior for mice. The handlers had to wear special kevlar gloves, and sometimes it took three technicians to give one mouse an injection.
The mice became nocturnal. Security guards reported high levels of activity (running and leaping about, gnawing on water bottles) during the night. In contrast, during the daytime the mice appeared lethargic.
Whenever lights were turned on, the mice become extremely agitated. They squealed, hissed and burrowed under the wood chips on the floors of their cages to get out of the light.
The mice exhibited unusual strength. On one occasion, a mouse escaped from its handler and began leaping six to eight feet into the air in an effort to escape. The facility had to be put under lockdown until the mouse was captured.
The mice displayed symptoms of bloodlust, such as gnawing on their own flesh and licking the blood. These mice were not included in the final study results.
How do I know this? I still have many friends at the Institute, including one technician who was directly involved in the study. Clearly, the altered vampire DNA is having deleterious effects on the mice that are not being mentioned by Institute PR flacks. The Institute has a responsibility to pass this information on to the public. If they don't do it, then I will.
