The Week contest: Young blood
Last week's question: A private health clinic in California has begun charging customers $8,000 to have half a gallon of blood plasma from teenagers and young adults pumped into their veins, which it claims can help defeat the aging process. Please come up with a marketing slogan the clinic could use for this unproven treatment.
