Five-day 'fasting' diet miraculously slows aging, can prevent death from heart disease, cancer and diabetes


Researchers from the University of Southern California (USC) have developed a diet that creates the same health effects as long-term calorie restrictions such as fasts if followed for just five days a month.

"I think based on the markers for ageing and disease in humans it has the potential to add a number of years of life but more importantly to have a major impact on diabetes, cancer, heart disease and other age-related disease," researcher Valter Longo said.

The study was funded by the National Institute on Aging and published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
