Are We Immortal?

By Steven H. Horne, AHG

Dr. Alexis Carrel, a two-time Nobel Prize winning scientist who performed the first kidney transplant, was head of the Rockefeller Research Institute. Under his direction, they took a small piece of heart tissue from an embryonic chicken and cultured it in a flask. They provided it with nutrients, oxygen and water. They filtered the water to remove the toxic wastes and kept the temperature regulated. By doing this, they were able to keep that piece of chicken heart living for more than 30 years with no signs of deterioration. This is far past the life span of a normal chicken. They concluded that cells could live and reproduce forever provided proper conditions were maintained.

Dr. Carrel wrote about the experiment in 1935: “When the composition of the (fluid around the cells) is maintained constant (with oxygen, nutrients, etc.), the cell colonies remain indefinitely in the same state of activity. They never grow old. Colonies obtained from a heart fragment removed in January 1912, from a chick embryo, are growing as actively today as 23 years ago. In fact, they are immortal….” (Alexis Carrel, Man the Unknown, New York: Halcyon House, 1938, p. 173.)

Just like the health of a plant depends on the health of the soil in which it is grown, so the health of our tissues depends on the composition of our bodily fluids, lymph and blood. When these are imbalanced, the whole organism is affected.
