A fasting-style diet may allow people to live longer by partially turning back the ageing clock, suggests new research.
The study shows that the specially formulated diet, sold under the brand name ProLon, causes cellular changes normally generated by several days of just drinking water. It also reduced cancer and inflammation diseases and extended lifespan in lab mice, the study found.
But it is safer than the 5:2 diet known as intermittent fasting when you eat normally five days and then drink just water for the other two days.
