FGF21 extends life in mice – what about humans?

Research is released daily that those who strive for optimal health and long life want to integrate into their lifestyle. This is what Living The CR Way is all about – helping people understand science and how to use it to make their lives better and possibly longer. So LivingTheCRWay.com initiated live teleconferences featuring leading experts in the fields of health and longevity. Held in a friendly, town meeting style, the expert guests make short presentations about their work and then livingthecrway.com members ask questions and make comments that help them understand how best to apply the findings to their lives.

The upcoming teleconference, scheduled for Sunday, October 28, features Drs. Steven Kliewer and David Mangelsdorf, scientists acclaimed for their exciting discovery showing that the fasting hormone FGF21 (Fibroblast Growth Factor-21) extends lifespan by 30% in male mice and almost 40% in females:  Inhibition of growth hormone signaling by the fasting-induced hormone FGF21.

This is important information for anyone who wants to extend lifespan, whether practicing calorie restriction or not because these mice did not limit calories!
