To test this, Energy Metabolism Professor Michael Ristow fed roundworms a dose of niacin, discovering that they lived one-tenth longer than those who went without. The vitamin is also rich in the likes of Marmite, paprika, peanuts and sun-dried tomatoes. This is surprisingly contrary to what scientiests believed, because the standard assumption has been that niacin promotes the formation of „free radicals,” causing faster ageing.
An antioxidant-rich diet has been contradicted by Ristow’s findings, which shows that niacin „tricks the body into believing that it is exercising,” perfect for any particularly lazy individual.
Next up will be testing the theory on mice, but for now allow me to personally thank science.
If you are German, you might remember an old song from the 80ies: „Carbonara” by Spliff Radio Show. I always think of that song when I cook this recipe, which my kids really like:
Stir 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks with the pecorino, salt and pepper. Fry the colve of garlic in the oil, with the sliced bacon. Take the garlic out when it starts getting brown – it will only get bitter then. Add some white wine and let it cook for a while.
Cook the spaghetti al dente, and mingle with the eggs and the bacon. Serve in warm plates and put parmesan on top.
