Clif High rejoins the show to discuss the future where humans live 125 to 200 years old. How will your life change and what should you do to prepare for a long life? We discuss the consequences of a long life without taking care of your long term health in the process (other factors such as dementia). This is a needed conversation that humans around the planet should be having if they are planning on pursuing life extension methods. Clif also talks about his recent sabbatical and his shifting passions and interests. Something most of us can relate to!
I found the following interesting information here: https://www.selfhacked.com/blog/fullerene-top-10-benefits-c60-oil/
Buckminsterfullerene, buckyballs, or C60 is a powerful antioxidant that has effects on unsaturated fats. C60 removes superoxide, which is a toxic by-product of cellular metabolism that contributes to tissue injury in many human diseases. A review of scientific research has shown that C60 has longevity and antioxidant effects given its scavenging capacity for reactive oxygen species. Some think that by absorbing nearby acid, C60 is then attracted to the mitochondria and carries the protons superoxide acceptors to prevent the very source of damage from the electron transport chain. The proposed mechanism indicates that C60 has the ability to acquire positive charge by absorbing protons (positively charged hydrogen atoms) and this complex could enter the mitochondria, leading to a decrease in reactive oxygen species production. Computer simulations have shown that C60 has the ability the pass through lipid membranes, enter the cell, and alter its functions. Some C60 derivatives that are produced in the body are water soluble and apparently non-toxic below concentrations of 1 mg/mL . Carboxy C60 is significantly better than ubiquinone, preventing fat peroxidation and iron-induced oxidation in cells. Also, malonyl-C60 inhibits nitric oxide synthase, a creator of nitric oxide which is a free radical in test-tubes. Furthermore C60 kills Viruses, protects Nerves (Nerves can die from being fired too often and worked too hard. Hydroxyl C60 protects nerves from dying due to overwork in cell cultures), prevents Osteoarthritis, improves Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome, kills Bacteria, prevents UV Damage and is also able to decrease Th2 and Th17 Dominance, a major contributing factor to many chronic illnesses and autoimmune disorders.
