Can We Starve Ourselves to Better Health and Longer Life?

This is a past event.

Many believe that a restrictive diet can lead to weight loss and better health, but does restriction actually work? Dr. Steven Austad will take a scientific approach to answering that question during Can We Starve Ourselves to Better Health and Longer Life? 

Join us virtually to explore

  • What we have learned from 70 years of animal research on the health impact of food restriction
  • What the existing data says about the impact of food restriction on human health
  • New approaches to human food restriction that look promising
