Here is an interesting article I found. It reminds me of an article I read a while back about reversed aging in mice by taking a way and reintroducing telemerase, kind of like the Tela cancer cells that are supposedly immortal.
I guess this poses the question, would you give up food and muscle for a longer life?[/quote]
Pretty sure short periodic fasts do the same thing.[/quote]
Correct. There was a documentary someone posted on here a month or so ago, where a guy looked into different fasting protocols and found some of them to provide some of the same decrease in certain hormones like IGF-1 as calorie restriction would.
I believe there is also recent evidence showing calorie restriction does not live up to the prolonged life claim. I’d have to double check though.
