The New Anti-Ageing Secret: Eat Less

The New Anti-Ageing Secret: Just Cut Down On Calories!

We do everything we can to turn back the hands of time but scientists from the University of Gothenburg have found a simple and cheap way to prevent ageing: cutting down on calories! It seems that a healthy diet not only helps you live longer, but also look younger. Mikael Molin, who conducted the research, says:

"We are able to show that caloric restriction slows down ageing by preventing an enzyme, peroxiredoxin, from being inactivated. This enzyme is also extremely important in counteracting damage to our genetic material. Impaired Prx1 function leads to various types of genetic defects and cancer."

Cutting out the risk of cancer and looking more youthful? We don't need telling twice. We'll be cutting out the carbs from now on.
