Live Long and Master Aging - Episode 46

The Longevity Diet, already a best-seller in Italy, is the result of decades of research – including laboratory and field studies – into the mechanisms behind the aging process.  The diet is based on a low protein and fish-based plan with periodic fasting. In this in-depth interview Dr. Longo explains why he believes it is the optimal regime to live a long and healthy life; how getting to the age of 110 is a realistic goal, and why the word ‘intermittent’ should be banished from conversations about diet.
