Intermittent Fasting to prevent heart disease?

An interesting one for those of us with an interest in intermittent fasting

Alternate-day fasting reverses the age-associated hypertrophy phenotype in rat heart by influencing the ERK and PI3K signaling pathways.

 In this context, ........... ADF (alternate day fasting) , might help to reduce pathological hypertrophy stimuli and to rescue an important cardioprotective pathway, possibly opening new preventive and therapeutic perspectives in age-related heart failure.
