Menstrual Blood: The new wonder cure-all

Matriarchal and Pagan societies, Tibetan lamas, Native American peoples, and Gnostic worshipers regularly used menstrual blood in their rituals as offerings to the earth, the community, and the goddess. The rituals of many traditions from Taoists to the Ancient Egyptians involved the ingestion of menstrual blood mixed with red wine to increase spiritual power. In Ancient Greece spring festivals included the spreading on the earth of corn mixed with menstrual blood to increase fertility. Now Western society is catching on. Sort of.

A new study suggests menstrual blood may be used to repair heart cells, Fox News reported. Researchers used menstrual blood from nine women and focused their study on a kind of cell that can act like stem cells. The results were awesome:
About 20 percent of these cells began beating spontaneously about three days after being put together in vitro with cells from the hearts of rats, the study says. The cells later formed sheet-like heart muscle tissue.The success rate is 100 times higher than the 0.2 to 0.3 percent for stem cells taken from human bone marrow, researcher Shunichiro Miyoshi, a cardiologist at Keio University's school of medicine, told French news agency AFP.

We always new women would be the ones to heal the world.
