Wonder where you can actually buy this stuff?

Hope you're rich though! cryingsmiley.gif

In the study they used 0.8 mg/mL. That is .8g/1L.

The average male needs 3L of water per day, so .8g x 3 = 2.4g of C60 per day.

At $45 per 1g, that would be $108 per 2.4g or $108 per day.

Roughly $3200 per month to have the C60 diet. (All assuming a human doesn't need more concentrate than a rat.)

You just repeated what I said. If the molecule act as an anti-oxidant, it won't have a big effect on us since we already have an anti-oxidant source.

I've made organic chemistry, making C60 is "possible" purifying it and removing all the other components you used for the reaction?
I don't think any Joe Blow could do that wink.gif

Hey... In our classes I made amphetamines and methemphetamines, sure we can synthezise it, but it is harder than just "making" it. You have to also extract the molecule which is the hardest part.

and overpopulation isn't the worry, its that we won't have enough food to feed the population

Going to quote Mark Twain here: "I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it."

You can't care about being dead when you're dead, and you couldn't have cared before you were conceived either.

I don't believe in any of the superstitious world ending in 2012 crap, or any sort of prediction lacking scientific backing behind the end of the world. With that said, provided we aren't wiped out by a super volcanic eruption blacking out the skies, getting wiped out in nuclear war, by a large meteor or some other mass-extinction event, humans will probably be around for a very long time.

However, no matter how hard we try to survive, I believe that someday our species will no longer exist. Supposedly 98 or 99% of species that have ever existed on Earth have become extinct. We've got a lot of ticking time bombs that we have to hurdle past. There's the sun that will swell up to a large size and fry our planet a few billion years from now. The Andromeda galaxy colliding with the milky way would cause all kinds of trouble. Even if we were to freely spread throughout our galaxy, there are a finite number of resources - there's only so many atoms and only so much energy.

Unless we somehow become 100% efficient at recycling every bit of matter and energy we interact with, we're going to run out of resources someday - probably hundreds of billions or trillions of years away, but eventually.

Although life is really cool, unique, and at the moment unexplainable, in the end there isn't a point to it.

That's not as expensive as I thought at first, definitely out of my reach but not so expensive that you need to be stupid rich.

I had a feeling they'd be expensive.
