In a Siberian times report, a Russian scientist Anatoli Brouchkov claims that 3.5 million year old bacteria Bacillus F

  • improves longevity and fertility of fruit flies and mice
  • stimulated the growth and also strengthened the immune system in experiments with human blood cells
  • allows 'mice grannies' to reproduce
  • increases frost resistance of seeds
  • enhances photosynthesis

In another article, the same scientist claims that he has injected himself these bacteria to improve his health which is also mentioned here, here and here.

Does injecting Bacillus F really improve one's health?

  • I see 5 questions in the body (all of which are actual claims in the article) and one in the title (which is not, in fact, claimed). Can we reduced this to a clear claim? Also, can we make the question factual? Asking "can x happen" is asking for speculation, it's better to ask "does x happen" instead.

  • I believe the edits by @pericles316 improved the question a lot, so that it better fits to guidelines now.
