"light" water and its proposed impact in aging

Very interesting experiment results on gamma-irradiated irradiated mice:

[The "light" water effect on lenticular opacity development in mice after repeated low dose gamma-irradiation]

Abrosimova AN, Rakov DV, Siniak IuE.

Action of "light" water with reduced quantities of heavy stable hydrogen and 18O ions on incidence and progress of lenticular opacity was studied in gamma-irradiated mice (60Co, 1.0 Gy). The animals were subjected to electroophthalmoscopy regularly till end of life time. The observation showed that chronic intake of "light" water safeguarded the irradiated mice against lenticular opacity. The experimental data indicate that "light" water strengthens the general body resistance as well as slows down aging of mammals.
