Oh no. People are going to buy this?

Topically applied stem cells from an entirely different species is supposed to rejuvenate human skin?

This isn't therapy. It's comic book pseudo-science!

I'm embarrassed that an article like this would even be published.

Cow stem cells? Applied topically?'I can feel my skin strengthening'? Cows from the French alps (ooh, how exotic!)?

Ridiculous. Aren't you guys supposed to be a news service?

Don't waste your money folks. If you want to look younger, the support genuine anti aging science of organisations like Sirtrus Pharma and the SENS Foundation. This stuff is pure snake oil.

Maybe this newspaper should also do a story on how UNREGULATED the cosmetic industry is in whole. We can literally put all kinds of crap on our faces and the FDA won't do a thing.

That would never happen since it might cause the loss of advertising revenue.

Hate to say this, but it's a scam to take advantage of desperate women looking to reverse what time has done to them.

Anyone with a bit of commonsense knows that applying stem cells topically isn't going to do much good.

Besides, I'll bet that whatever solutions they're using only contains a minute amount of stem cells (if there is even any at all) and that the rest of the solution is made out of collagen and elastin that'll give them that young skin feeling.

Having said that, what bothers me more is that The Star Bulletin is even printing this stuff.

Is The Star Bulletin a tabloid now?

Are we that dumb?

One look at the lady in the photo and you can be sure this will make cows look better. What a crock ... another place for the decadent rich to throw away money that should be there for the old, the indigent, the homeless, and kids.

"Clinical studies of the DNA CryoStem treatment reveal that 71 percent of old skin cells are reprogrammed with the biologically flawless DNA from the organically raised cows who live in the South of France at the base of the Alps, Rapoza said."

Wow, they don't even bother to try to come up with a convincing lie. If you want to throw all that money away, why don't you just send it to me? I'll tell you that you're beautiful.:-)

..to get free advertising on crackpot beauty treatments by sending in a press release to the SB!

Wake up, people! Stem stells from cows on your FACE? How about accepting the universal fact that we all age, and accepting that you are still beautiful no matter what Helen and everyone else want you to think??

Sad, the state of journalism today...
