“Here we show that oral administration of C60 dissolved in olive oil (0.8 mg/ml) at reiterated doses (1.7 mg/kg of body weight) to rats not only does not entail chronic toxicity but it almost doubles their lifespan.”

Oh, huh. Apparently Fullerene buckyballs, when adminstered to rats, increased their lifespan by 90%, perhaps by scavenging free radicals. So even after everyone lives twice as long, we’ll all be saturated with so much C60 that they’ll be able to harvest our livers to build space elevators.

(Crazy! But obviously you probably want to let them do some more research before you buy fullerene in bulk and crush it up into your own supply of olive oil. At least wait long enough for me to start my own supplements company that will happily sell it to you in convenient pill form.)
