Building Better Calorie Restriction

Also from Wired, an examination of modern aging research that takes calorie restriction as a starting point. Several groups (like BioMarker Pharmaceuticals) are searching for a way to develop life-extending medicine that has the same effects as a calorie restriction diet, but without the need to eat less. Extensive calorie restriction science now points the way to biochemical and genetic mechanisms within the body that can, in theory, be targeted by therapies. It is possible that therapies could even do better than calorie restriction itself, but that remains to be seen.
