Sure beats an ultra low calorie diet...

Interesting article in the Washington Post today about a hormone in mice that can extend life span. -- Although it is years away from human testing, prior to this, the only way to extend life span was to severely restrict caloric intake.

A researcher at UCLA suggests that the benefit to humans from severe calori restriction would be very small.

Caloric restriction won't dramatically extend life span in humans
