Description - Caloric Restriction: A Key to Understanding and Modulating Aging by E.J. Masoro

Caloric restriction has been proven to slow the aging process in rats and mice and is currently being studied in non-human primates. It is thought that if the biological mechanisms of the anti-aging action were uncovered, we would gain an understanding of the basic nature of the aging processes. This would, in turn, yield possible interventions in human aging. The question of how caloric restriction works is thus a major focus of research in biological gerontology. This title provides the growing number of researchers in this field with a detailed knowledge of what is known about caloric restriction within the frame of gerontology, as well as insights on the future of the field.
