Calorie-intake restriction can advantage longevity and help prevent cancer Researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham can see that restricting consumption of glucose, the most typical dietary sugar, can extend the life of healthy human-lung cells and speed the loss of life of precancerous human-lung cells, reducing cancer’s pass on and growth rate. The extensive research has wide-ranging potential in age-related science, including ways that calorie-intake restriction can benefit longevity and help prevent diseases like cancer that have been linked to aging, said principal investigator Trygve Tollefsbol, Ph .D., D.O., a professor in the Division of Biology.
