Zhuman longevity drug

Spermidine strongly increases mammal lifespan, these are variants of spermidine that may be even more effective at increasing lifespan
  [vote for,

Zhu Zhu robot hamsters are wildly popular. There is also a probiotic yogurt LKM512 that more than doubles the longevity of mice(link). Thus I suggest naming a new longevity drug after the robot hamster. It comes at two varieties, the electronic version that gives you Zhu Zhu hamster super Edurability as well as the actual veterinary drug you can give a hamster. Further the Zhuman longevity drug is a part of the Zhu Zhu universe.

Now to create better human longevity drugs than LKM512 or its similar functioning chemical spermidine (which can be thought of among the lazy as triamine octane, even though its different). Just create unsaturated c=c versions like those at the link. The idea is that just as repositioning the grouping of C=C at a linear hydrocarbon shifts color, these kind of mild changes further improves this molecules longevity effects.

The adventurous could also see what HN=\/\nh/\/=NH does as the higher reactivity of the NH group may more strongly effect receptors. Im not completely sure HN=\/\nh/\/=NH is possible.

The partially saturated version of spermidine that most longevizes human tissue cultures is then described as the drug ZHuman which everyone has been mentally prepared for as a result of the robot hamster, actual hamster, drug publicity effect. The electronic version of the drug could just be lithium ion batteries at the Zhu Zhu hamster.

plos1 article on doubling mouse lifespan with LMK512 probiotic http://www.ncbi.nlm...rticles/PMC3156754/
If you view the supplememental data at the article the comparison of LKM512 with spemidine is graphed. at 80 weeks spermidine also doubles mouse lifespan at 3 mg per Kg [beanangel, Feb 24 2012]

spermidine at wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spermidine
looks a lot like octane with amines Various longevity references as well [beanangel, Feb 24 2012]

       Well, just think   

       You get your Zhu Zhu Hamster the longevity lithium ion battery pak   

       You give an actual hamster LMK512 doubling its longevity   

       Adults as well as kids growing up believe these drugs can be created as well as applied to humans to give greater longevity.   

       Its pretty honest as advertising goes.

       The PLoS One paper is quite dramatic. Which makes me wonder why it was only published in PLoS One...

       [MB] Here are some other possible explanations, besides the one you (implicitly) raise:
2) They're committed to only publishing in open access journals (I checked: they're not).
3) They might be hoping to milk a particularly good result for maximum impact by publishing in an open access journal, given that the "tabloids" are out of their reach. After all, would [beanangel] have read the complete paper otherwise?
4) Yoghurt specialists may have trouble getting published in better journals, however good their work.

       Probably because you're laughing so hard you've begun to hyperventilate. Put it down, take a breather, drink some electrolytes, then come back later and finish it at an easier pace.

       Well, it's official: [beanangel] is actually a chatbot that scrapes text from science-themed blogs. Somebody probably posted something about how their kids liked these hamster things, and the algorithm sucked it right up.   

       I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.

       While this paper on probiotics seems impressive, there is one major problem--that the control mice didn't live nearly as long as expected. And that's the sort of thing that makes you wonder if they were poisoned by an unscrupulous researcher.   

       From the paper: “At less than 36 weeks of treatment, the median survival of the control group was less than 19 months, which was considerably short in comparison to those reported in other longevity studies conducted in mice.”   

       There is another paper, however, that points out various benefits of this probiotic: Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis fermented milk product reduces inflammation by altering a niche for colitogenic microbes
