Calorie Restriction and Exercise: Powerful Protection Against Disease and Aging

Friday, November 16, 2012 @ 1:00 PM-2:30 PM

On Science Series

Featured Speaker: Edward “Ted” Weiss, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Nutrition and Dietetics, Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, Saint Louis University

Calorie restriction and exercise protect against many chronic diseases, increase average lifespan, and improve quality of life. Animal studies show that calorie restriction, but not exercise, increases maximal lifespan by 30-50%.

In humans that could translate to the oldest people in our society living 120-150 years. Discuss evidence for and against the possibility that calorie restriction might increase human lifespan.
