Rats, Supplements, Healthy Life Extension

Supplements occupy something of a middle ground in the science-business rift over healthy life extension. On the one hand, the weight of evidence is that taking supplements will help you retain your good health for longer; on the other hand, supplements are aggressively marketed by some groups as anti-aging pills, complete with exaggerated claims. This article from the LEF News discusses recent studies on supplementation in rats, and is as good an example of straight talk about the science of supplements as you're going to find these days.
