A study of almost 4,000 ‘super elderly’ people in Italy suggests that there is no natural limit to aging. Each of the study subjects were aged 105 or older. The researchers found that the risk of mortality increases as we age but then tapers off after age 105. They referred to this phenomenon as a ‘mortality plateau.
There is a lot of research going on regarding slowing down the aging process. The shining star of all of this research was undoubtedly intermittent fasting. One of the most interesting facts to emerge from this research was that the body reacts to fasting the same way that it does to exercise. Both of them place stress on the body. But the stresses that come from fasting and exercise are considered as positive stressors.
Intermittent fasting is being recognized as a breakthrough in the fields of weight loss, lean muscle increase, anti-aging and overall well-being . . . It will encourage the body to dramatically increase the production of hormone and neural factors that will improve the functioning of our bodies and our brains.
