Carbon 60 Rat Study - As spoken by David Wolfe.
CARBON 60 IS CHANGING LIVES
The Buckminsterfullerene C60 molecule is the newly uncovered wonder molecule, a very special form of carbon with 60 atoms, known simply as C60. C60 is a unique molecule of carbon with 60 atoms in the shape of a soccer ball, officially named the buckminsterfullerene after famous visionary Buckminster Fuller.
Carbon 60 may be the most advanced formulation of the “miracle molecule” that many of the most knowledgeable health experts in the world are raving about…
Famous Rat Study
For the 'famous rat study' they dosed 10-month-old rats daily for 7 days, then weekly until the end of the second month, and then monthly until the end of the seventh month, after which all dosage stopped.
There were 3 groups of rats one group was fed water, another olive oil and the third group Carbon 60 olive oil and to their surprise, instead of causing illness, disease or early death, the rats fed Carbon 60 olive oil actually lived longer than the other groups of rats. After three years, all of the water-treated rats were dead, matching up with the typical life-expectancy of a rat of around 2.5 to 3 years. The olive-oil-only rats lived, on average, 18% longer than the control (water-only) rats, while the Carbon 60 olive oil treated rats lived 90% longer than the water-only rats. Some of the C60-dosed rats lived for as long as 4.5 years, and anecdotal accounts from the researchers suggest that the last rats were finally put down after 6 years, so that the research could finally be published.
The researchers proposed that the main way that the carbon 60 was having its effect was through the reduction of oxidative stress. In other words, the carbon 60 was somehow acting as a powerful antioxidant and reducing the effects of ageing.
To make sure that their results were valid, the researchers also treated another group of rats with carbon tetrachloride (CCI4), which is normally quite toxic to rats.
The control rats showed the usual toxic response, with their symptoms lasting around 24 hours, but the Carbon 60 olive oil treated rats only showed these symptoms for around 5 hours.
They also examined the livers of all of their rat groups and found that the carbon 60 protected the rats’ livers from damage.
So not only did the researchers establish that Carbon 60 was not toxic to mammals, they found that it protected the body – and the liver – from damage, and significantly extended their lifespan.
The researchers also wondered whether longer-term dosing could have produced an even greater lifespan extension in the rats, which would be a fascinating area for further study.
Its early days for Carbon 60 but who knows the sky is the limit.
