    We know that the pineal gland plays a role in aging because research has shown that putting young pineal glands in old animals helps reverse aging. The old animals' hair grew thicker and lusher when the new pineals were inserted.

    By contrast, putting old pineal glands in young animals quickens the aging process. Mice with new pineals lived 25 percent longer, but we're yet unable to determine if the same statistics would be true for humans. So don't plan on sacrificing any younger friends anytime soon.
