You are a vampire and you want to look like you have been on a feeding frenzy, or you are a zombie and you've just eaten fresh brains, the Texas Chainsaw killer, or Freddy. These are all costumes that you could use blood with. Wouldn't it be so much cooler if you could make the blood look real. Well, this is your chance.
The 3rd annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive happens in Hermantown, July 16-19. The event pits the Hermantown Police Department against the Hermantown Fire Department in an effort to raise awareness and donations of blood.
A blood test that should be available in Europe by the end of the year could give you a pretty good indication of how fast you are aging and how much longer you will live.
The test measures telomeres, structures on the end of each of your chromosomes, which scientists think may hold the key to determining a person's "true age."
