    The tough thing is the dose. For the human equivalent of fisetin that was used in this study, you need to eat about 2g of the stuff, which means about 14lbs of strawberries.

How... often must one eat 14lbs of strawberries? Because I'll be honest I've never seen a recipe that makes me question the LD50 of a fruit before.

I have a pal that just went for it with fisetin supplements. He reported no observable ill effects, except for itchy skin after eating more than a bottle. He has 30 years on me, and is in senolytics R&D. Don't try this at home.

I'm going to give it more time, and do some experiments (in the lab) myself before replacing a smoothie.
