Eating fewer calories may lower risk of asthma, other diseases | Longevity science |
People with asthma may one day receive an unconventional prescription for their condition: eat less.


Caloric Restriction (CR) has been studied for years as a method for life extension. This has been proven to work in animal studies, but the results are still unclear in human-- mainly because human lifespan is so much longer than animal lifespan that an adequate study is difficult to engineer. 


Now we have evidence that CR may help lower risk of diseases, from asthma to cancer and even Alzheimer's.
