I would like to share a new observation that was made here at the
University of South Florida.  It has been found that with the addition of
an antioxidant (PBN) and minimal addition of vitamim B and A, laboratory 
rats have had a 10% life extension in a period of about two months.  The 
rats were also found to have an increase in intelligence.  The Article 
will be published next month in The Journal of Neuroscience.  The main 
investigator is Dr. Arendash here at the department of Biology at USF.
