    We have investigated the effect on longevity of restriction of caloric intake by 10% together with voluntary wheel running. This approach was suggested by Holloszy et al (J. Appl. Physiol 59:826-831, 1985). SPF male Fischer 344 rats were singly housed under barrier conditions and divided into 3...

    Calorie restriction (CR)increases mean and maximal life span and reduces or delays the onset of age-related diseases in rodents. Recent findings from monkey studies of CR suggest that CR might positively affect diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. In rodents and rhesus monkeys...
