Another potential benefit of fasting

We are getting into a bit of an intermittent fasting series here. This is an interesting study that was picked up by Art DeVany here.

He points towards a study reported here which explains a possible mechanism behind the way in which calorie restriction (and possibly fasting) is able to improve longevity. Like most studies which are done out there, this one comes with lots of ifs and buts, however the indication is that going hungry episodically can turn on a beneficial cell cleansing process.

More "food for thought".
