A question on dosages, Jo. How much are you feeding your rats (mice?) in your
experiement? And do you know what that amounts to in mg/kg? Also, do you know
what the doses were in some of the published studies that showed life
extension properties for mice? (Again in mg/kg, since I don't know how much
those critters drink in a day.)
Well, OK, that was three questions.
