<div class="quote-block">The study is so promising that the aging institute this week is strongly considering a repeat of the same experiment with rhesus monkeys, coming the closest to humans, after succeeding in using resveratrol on yeast, worms, fruit flies and now mice, said institute director Dr. Richard Hodes.</div>

This is stupid. Stupid and disgusting. I hate animal testing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rifle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":gun:"><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">"It's not an excuse to overeat," Sinclair said. But he added that for mice at least, this shows you can be "fat, happy, healthy and vigorous."</div>

What's the point of this study!??!?! We already know we can be fat, happy, healthy, and vigorous? WTF.<br><br><br><br>
Lame.

er...do we? usually fat, healthy, and "vigorous" (physically vigorous, that is) constitute a contradiction.<br><br><br><br>
I think this study DOES have meaningful conclusions.<br><br><br><br>
ebola

without animal research, we wouldn't have many of the treatments we have today. Things like AIDS & cancer treatments and birth control.<br><br><br><br>
And, FWIW, I agree with ebola -- It's not a solid conclusion that you can be fat & fit. Most of the medical community would disagree. But, I'm close to 160 and could probably outrun many of you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Oh, I thought people were yelling at me months ago because I thought fat = unhealthy. Ok, maybe you can't be vigorous.<br><br><br><br>
Well, whatever! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hamster.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hamster:"> I get confused about these things, anyway.<br><br><br><br>
I still hate animal research, even if it helped me today. As I don't like government handouts, even though I do/will benefit from them.

Let me introduce you to the word "usually". It appeared in my post for a reason.<br><br><br><br>

I think we'd need to find someone who's fat to engage this question, rather than you. This point stands though.<br><br><br><br>

Fat and weight are not necessarily the same thing. You could weigh 160 and be far from fat in terms of body percentages.<br><br>
I think this is an interesting study with interesting implications. How much suffering is involved in the rats being fat? I have walked through the nueroscience department at my uni and found much worse than making them fat going on.
