Caloric Restriction

In 1935 a scientist wanted to see what starving animals would do to them in relation to stunted growth and cancer. What he found out, turned out to be the opposite of what he was expecting.

That's what is great about science. True science. Not bullshit stuff. He (Clive McCay) expected to see certain results but got the opposite of what he was looking for.

These mice that were restricted in calories ended up living longer than normally fed mice. Wow!

These experiments have been repeated over and over again, along with other animals, including monkeys. A professor from UCLA took up the torch in the 1970s (Roy Walford) and his studies have continued to show that CRON is also a viable alternative for mankind.

There are actually people in Western Society who have studied the results of CRON and have taken upon themselves to practice this discipline.

If you would like to read about it, "Google" "Calorie restriction" and do the same with "You Tube". There is an abundance of information on the subject.
