I am 65 and, according to this article, I can be like I was when I was 20, and can ride for another 55 years. Do I want to?

I got a good chuckle from: "In the past year, Driscoll says two animal studies and one human trial showed a 50 percent reduction in oxidative stress - getting free radical levels down to that of a 20 year old.

However, Driscoll says due to legal reasons, he cannot release the results of that study yet to the public (italics added for emphasis).

But the article states:

Driscoll claims at its best, taking the supplement every day would not only allow you to live to be 120 years old - but live to be an active, vibrant 120 year old.
Sp, couldn't I bike until I was 120?

Based on the words he uses "active,vibrant 120 year old" I would think that would include be able to bike up to 120 yrs old.....

But I do like the part also where he says he can't release the results, but you can still buy the stuff... SNAKE OIL>>>>>>>>>>>
