If you want to live a fuller, longer life, do not be any kind of animal that carries humans. Poison is killing camels in Saudi Arabia and flu is killing horses in Australia. On the other hand, DO be a stinging, pollen-gathering, nectar-sipping insect. The ageing process has been reversed in bees. Vitellogenin is the answer. Thought Experiments is now obtaining large quantities of this powerful anti-oxidant and will be making it available to readers at a bargain price of $10,000,000 per nanogram - hardly, as Nadine Baggott would say, a celebrity price tag. The poor can simply rub bees in their faces. It won't work, but it's nice to have a hobby.
