Carbon-60

95% increase in lifespan or rubbish?

The prolongation of the lifespan of rats by repeated oral administration of [60]fullerene

anything since that 2012 discovery? You would think something so huge they would follow up with duplication or a study in rabbits or something.

The C60 was administered in an olive oil solution. Did they do a control group that just got olive oil?

Important given that olive oil is a source of antioxidants and healthy mono fats.

Will post any later studies if I see them.

There is a growing number of people that are into C60 supplements right now. That's why I ask. I'm curious if all these people are basing the whole health craze of it off of a single study.
