Fruit Fly Research Gives an Answer to Aging? Buck Institute for Age Research Study
Published: Jul 05, 2012
New fruit fly research sheds light on fatty acid metabolism in muscle, which could ultimately have implications for people who restrict calories in the hopes of gaining a longer life. Fruit flies on dietary restriction need to be physically active in order to reap the lifespan extending benefits that come from their simple diet. If this same principle holds true in humans, those who restrict calories in their diets need to make sure that they eat enough to avoid fatigue.
