Some results with mice have been negative, but Deprenyl does seem
to extend the maximum lifespan of rats. Only Dr. Knoll from Hungary
has reported numbers as high as 40%, though. Usually the increase is
somewhere around 20%.

Why don't you summarize this new data and post it to the group so we
can all discuss it. These tapes are expensive and contain only one
lecture each.  I doubt that Dr. Ivy presented much new information
about Deprenyl. There wasn't any in the conference report by Life
Extension Magazine.

Sounds like an interesting book. Why don't you post some of the
major ideas from your book so we can discuss it.
