This looks interesting. Has anyone tried supplements?

Best wishes, Steve

From the article:

"Increases in lifespan of 10-23% were also recorded in worms."

Probably best we don't let Boris get his hands on any then.

Also, a nutritionalist was telling me ages ago that there is loads of Taurine in Red Bull (partly why it has that name) and other 'horrible chemicals' and I must stop drinking it!

That brought back memories. Believe it or not, when I studied Biochemistry many years ago, I was supposed to know most of that!

Happy days. :roll:
