Researchers studying a large sample of adults for nearly two decades found that eating a diet full of animal proteins means you are four times more likely to die of cancer than someone with a low-protein diet.
A new study from the University of Southern California (USC) recently found that a normal, low-protein diet could slow signs of Alzheimer’s and boost memory in mice.
Man may not live by bread alone, but cancer in animals appears less resilient, judging by a study that found chemotherapy drugs work better when combined with cycles of short, severe fasting.
A 22-year study of abnormally short individuals suggests that growth-stunting mutations also may stunt two of humanity's worst diseases.
Preliminary Study Raises the Possibility of a Drug That Would Protect Patients Against Many Side Effects of Chemotherapy.
University of Southern California scientists say they have discovered glucose to glycerol conversion in long-lived yeast provides anti-aging effects. Researchers said they discovered yeast cells maintained on a glycerol diet live twice as long as normal -- as long as yeast cells on a severe caloric-restriction diet -- and are more resistant to cell damage. The scientists said their study is the first to propose that dietary substitution can replace dietary restriction in a living species. If...
Cell biologists have found a more filling substitute for caloric restriction in extending the life span of simple organisms. In a study published May 8 in the open-access journal PLoS Genetics
Scientists have extended the lifespan of yeast, microbes responsible for creating bread and beer, by 10-fold.
