In case you didn't notice, the most vigorous forum discussion right now is about the C60/Olive Oil study in rats. on the surface it looks like a blockbuster longevity study but there are some problems. The study was designed to test toxicity not longevity, there were some errors in the data/publication which I am not sure have been resolved, and the sample size was pathetically small.
I propose Longecity help replicate this study. No doubt there are other people in the world who are also moving on this, but it is usually the case that large government or university funded studies move at a glacial pace. I suspect Longecity could raise the money and get moving on this a lot quicker.
As far as we know, C60 might only work to slow aging, not rejuvenate, but if the health extending benefits in rats are real, then it could be a promising substance for humans.
wccaguy has volunteered to lead a fundraising effort for this project. Also, we have a handful of members who are already producing the substance, so it might be more synergistic for Longecity to run this than other orgs/labs.
