Parent Episode: Dr. Valter Longo on Resetting Autoimmunity and Rejuvenating Systems with Prolonged Fasting & the FMD

To establish an optimal diet for longevity, scientists are pursuing various avenues of investigation, including basic and clinical research as well as epidemiological and centenarian studies. By consolidating these approaches, researchers aim to better understand how one's eating pattern affects aging. For example, if basic research reveals that a particular diet is best for longevity, yet no long-lived populations around the world eat this way, then one may choose to be cautious about this diet. In this clip, Dr. Valter Longo discusses his new book "The Longevity Diet" and how his fasting-mimicking diet can treat or prevent several age-related diseases.
