Comments on Dietary Restriction, Okinawa Diet and Longevity

Natalia S Gavrilova et al. Gerontology.

Abstract

Longevity in Okinawa is considered to be a result of traditional low calorie diet. Le Bourg suggests that Okinawa is an example of severe malnutrition, which is harmful for later generations. We believe that current loss of longevity advantage in Okinawa is a result of diet westernization and that the dietary restriction is a valid way of life extension in humans.
