Caloric Restriction in Primates

The NYT has an article about research on "caloric restriction" in primates.

Caloric restriction has been shown to significantly extend lifespan in every organism in which it has been tested. Showing it works in primates means it will probably work in humans.

This is fascinating.

Unfortunately it would be a horrible way to live. Hopefully this research will uncover some lazier, undisciplined way to take advantage of this life extending mechanism.

Update: Oops. I had the wrong link, its fixed now.

I must apologize for my slacking the last two weeks. I was on vacation for a week and I've been busy with campaigning for Jim Webb. So, bear with me.

Thanks for your patience.
