PBS On Calorie Restriction And Genes

You can listen and participate in a discussion about anti-aging research at PBS; the focus is on calorie restriction and the groups seeking to develop healthy life extension medicine based on the underlying genetics and biochemistry that cause calorie restriction to provide health benefits and extend life span. This field of dedicated longevity medicine is currently the most well known and well funded - but it may not be the best path forward towards radically extended healthy life spans. Regardless, there is no such thing as useless knowledge in biology, and researchers are uncovering important information about the way in which metabolism and aging interact at the most fundamental level.
