"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

In other new research, Valter Longo, director of the University of Southern California's Longevity Institute, showed that when people occasionally fasted, they lowered their risk factors for age-related diseases. In the trial, which was published in the journal Cell Metabolism, Longo did a series of modified fasting experiments on mice and humans.

Mice that were fed an extremely low-calorie and low-protein fasting diet improved their metabolism, decreased bone loss, improved cognitive function, got cancer at a lower rate and even lengthened their lives. Longo then tried a similar diet strategy on 19 people for five days a week. The menu was full of healthy foods but contained 34% to 54% fewer calories than what the people in the study usually consumed.

After following the diet for three months, the people in the study had notable drops in risk factors related to aging, diabetes, heart disease and cancer, including lower blood sugar and reduced levels of the growth hormone IGF-1, which accelerates aging. While that hormone is important for normal development earlier in life, some people get too much of it from high-protein foods. Longo's research has also shown that cancer risk can increase about 400% among Americans who get 20% or more of their calories from protein, compared with people who clock in only about 10%.

There are a lot of factors that are not being considered in these blanket number crunches. We all know the problems with the proteins that most people are consuming --- farm-raised, grain-fed, unhealthy animals that are utilized to produce unhealthy meat products.

None of these factors appear to have been considered in this study.

there have also been studies on "sugar" being the fuel source for cancer growth

and sugar is contained in all carbohydrates, not discounting the protein study

and no I am not posting a link, there is google for that

Grass fed makes no difference in cranking up IGF1.

Didn't read the actual study, but the linked article didn't even contain the word "carbohydrate." Which might be kind of a big oversight when cancer is involved.

I second that.

I looked at the news on the internet this week and it said rice not prepared properly can cause cancer. A week or so before that there was talk of a substance called acrylomide causing cancer which is forms in any food grilled, fried, roasted or toasted.

Then there's all the pollutants in the air. Then there's lifestyle choices. The list is so endless, the journalists who write about it are set for life.

Yeah, and if they weren't provided some bullshit info to run with , they'd make something up.

Then by their account, Texas should have the most huge cancer rate in the nation. I don't see it.

Nor, if it were true, would it slow this, or any other heavy BBQ state down!

Try to stay active, get quality sleep, try to minimize stress as much as you can, stay at a decent bodyfat level, eat balanced and mostly whole foods (whether higher or lower carb), don't smoke, don't drink excessively, and try to stay away from other common sense 'hazards' in life. Good attitude is important too.

After that, you've done everything possible to prevent any kind of disease.

The rest is in your DNA.
