Fountain of Youth Discovered: Stop Eating So Much

“Sharply cutting calories in the diets of rhesus monkeys was found to reduce aging-related deaths, according to a study that followed 76 monkeys for two decades. The findings, published Thursday in Science magazine by researchers at the University of Wisconsin, give new impetus to researchers and companies, including GlaxoSmithKline PLC, that are searching for a drug to mimic the beneficial effects of a meager diet in humans without the feeling of near-starvation. For thousands of people who already attempt to sharply restrict their food intake — by as much as 30% below a normal diet of roughly 2,200 calories a day — in an effort to live longer, the findings appear to validate a technique called calorie restriction as a way to live longer.” [WSJ]
