Low-Calorie Diet May Lead To Longer Life

It has been known for many years due to studies involving rats that restricting calorie consumption increased longevity in rats. Now studies are being done with humans and the findings might reveal a similar outcome.
The findings lend support to the theory that eating less, long known to prolong life in rats and mice, may do the same for people, by preventing heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other diseases, and by slowing aging.
The notion that going hungry could be the fountain of youth has captivated scientists and the public. Calorie restriction, the scientific name for a regimen high in nutrients but low in calories, is the subject of intense research, and some people have already begun trying it on their own.
