Getting more red blood cells throug heating of the bone marrow

There has been some experimental work done recently in producing more red blood cells by heating older yellow bone marrow in either Japan or China.

Electrotherapy can be used to heat the bone marrow of older patients, decreacing the fat content of unproductive yellow bone matrow, to become red blood cell producing red bone marrow, by using diathermy principles.

'This action heat upon bone marrow increaces the number of red blood cells and the output of hemoglobin.'
