I didn't quite get whether they let the control group fast or not?
Cause if not, why??
Yeah, that article just didn't bother with a lot of very relevant details. A link to the full text is here: http://extremelongevity.net/wp-content/uploads/C60-Fullerene.pdf
4 groups of 3 rats
They think 12 is an adequate sample size?
ETA: Wait, wrong section....wait...they think 18 is an adequate sample size? If half of those are controls, there were only 9 actually tested for survival. Not saying their conclusions are wrong, just that at lower sample sizes outliers tend to be magnified.
On the other hand....100% of fullerine tested rats alive after 38 months, while all the water control rats were dead from aging.
ETA2: No, not 9 control. 6 control, six olive oil treatment, and six fullerine treated rats.
