Subject: [ExI] Drug makes fat mice live longer
A drug has been found that extends the lifespan of fat mice by a whopping 44%, although that's still less than the lifespan of a normal thin mouse. It's not clear if the drug SRT-1720, a resveratrol analog (found in red wine), will make non-obese mice live longer; a study is underway to determine that but because thin mice live longer than fat mice there hasn't been enough time to complete it yet.
