C60 koolstof molecuul

The first researcher who demonstrated the favorable properties of C60 with a rat test was Prof. dr. Fathi Moussa who together with Tarek Baati at the Université Paris Sud. His rats did not get cancer despite a heavy carcinogenic poison being injected into them. In addition, the rats lived 63% (median value) longer than normal.

Only the effect of C60 explained how the rats could survive. This was followed by a wave of new research into this promising molecule, of which we cite a number of relevant studies on the publications page.

One of the research goals was to determine whether C60 is toxic. The researchers were able to establish that it is safe because no amount of C60 negatively affected the health of the rats. Below an interview from 2012 when the research was just published.
