Calorie restriction likely doesn't prolong life

Just recently new research results likely indicate that calorie restriction probably won’t prolong live in monkeys, making it likely that it won’t work in humans as well.

Which is kind of sad, as I was about to jump on and try it out. Still there’s nothing wrong with calorie restriction, as the monkeys in the study seemed to live healthier than the control group – and obesity is definitely a risk of dying unneccessary early. But it probably won’t prolong your life as it does in rats and worms.

Water Soluble Hydrated Fullerenes from UKRAINE

The only source of safe non toxic water-soluble fullerenes or buckyballs for human consumption is in Ukraine at http://www.ipacom.com. Soon available to Canada too. Approved as a dietary supplement by the Ministry of Health in UKRAINE in 2010 after over 15 years of pre-clinical and clinical studies. The world’s first nanotech based health drink in the wrold.
