Can We Live to 120 on the Fasting Mimicking Diet or Calorie Restriction?

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, life extension

A look back at the most popular life extension articles of 2017. Here is the report Can We Live to 120 on the Fasting Mimicking Diet or Calorie Restriction?


Summary: The Fasting Mimicking Diet, also called the Valter Longo diet, and the spartan practice of calorie restriction are the twin subjects of two recent research reports. Both research reports show that the fasting regimens offer potential health benefits. This article includes commentary by the inventor of the Fasting Mimicking Diet, Valter Longo.

The idea that animals can live longer, healthier lives by drastically reducing their calorie intake is not exactly new. Scientists have repeatedly demonstrated the life-extending value of calorie restriction (CR) in animals from worms to monkeys—with the implication that the same might be true for humans.

First Human FROZEN

Posted by in categories: cryonics, life extension, nanotechnology

Dennis Kowalski, the president of Cryonics Institute in the United States, has made the incredible announcement that cryonics is advancing so fast that he is unable to keep up with the demand for it. The institute spearheads the process of freezing human beings by cryogenics.

Dennis spoke exclusively and said that technology is making huge advances and went on to talk about CPR and said that it would have seemed not possible only 100 years ago. He said that today people take technology for granted. Dennis used to work as a paramedic and said that the reason he got into cryogenics was thanks to a book with the title of Engines of Creation by J Robert Freitas which has the focus on nanotechnology.

Why Do We Age? The Disposable Soma Theory Answers the Riddle

Posted by in categories: evolution, life extension

Summary: Why Do We Age? Scientists answer the question with the latest evolutionary theory of aging, the disposable soma theory, which supports the longevity benefits of calorie restriction. With commentary by leading geroscientist, Tom Kirkwood. [This article first appeared on the website LongevityFacts.com. Author: Brady Hartman. ]

The process of aging, or growing old, presents an apparent contradiction to people who believe in Darwin’s theory of evolution. Aging increases the vulnerability of an organism, which ultimately leads to its death. How could evolution favor a process that gradually increases mortality and decreases the ability to reproduce?

Leading scientists have found an answer to this puzzling contradiction and offer us new theories to explain why we age and die using evolutionary theory – the idea that aging confers an evolutionary advantage.

Breakthroughs in Diabetes and Prediabetes Treatments (Our Best of 2017)

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Summary: A brief review of the top reports in 2017 on prediabetes and type 2 diabetes treatments, including new ones and those in the pipeline. [This article first appeared on the LongevityFacts.com website. Author: Brady Hartman.]

A paper published in the Lancet shocked the public last year when they reported that 40% of Americans walking around today would develop type 2 diabetes. While type 2 diabetes is a leading cause of premature death, the World Health Organization (WHO) upset even more people when they announced that prediabetes – the precursor state to diabetes – kills far more people.

Here’s a look back at the reports in 2017 on the ways to prevent type 2 diabetes and prediabetes and the promising treatments in the pipeline for these two forms of diabetes.
