Dietary restriction-induced life extension: a broadly based biological phenomenon


, : Dietary restriction-induced life extension: a broadly based biological phenomenon. Biogerontology 7(3): 153-155

It is concluded that dietary restriction will extend the life of all species in the Animalia Kingdom, including the human species. This conclusion is based on the fact that hormesis is a component of the life-extending action and the other anti-aging effects of dietary restriction. It is also concluded that given the currently available database, it is not possible to predict the quantitative effect of dietary restriction on the human life span.

Introduction: The natural course of disease in CLL is one of increasing resistance to chemo/radiotherapy, possibly related to deregulation of genes involved in apoptosis induction and DNA-repair. Therefore alternative therapy strategies are looked...
