Researchers in France found that lifespan nearly doubled in rats fed olive oil with 0.8 mg/ml (Buckminster) fullerene (C60). Perhaps all the activated charcoal my grandmother feed me as a kid when I had a stomach ache counts too …

Abbott Labs has filed a Food Additive Petition with FDA to provide for the expanded safe use of vitamin D3 as a nutrient supplement in food. Specifically, the petition proposes to amend § 172.380 (21 CFR 172.380) to provide for the safe use of vitamin D3 as a nutrient supplement in meal replacement beverages and meal replacement bars that are not intended for special dietary use in reducing or maintaining body weight and for use in foods that are sole sources of nutrition for enteral tube feeding.
