Everyone seems to be fasting these days. But there are so many different fasting protocol it is easy to be confused by this age old practice. Valter Longo is Director of the University of Southern California (USC) Longevity Institute and a professor in biological science. He is one of the world's leading experts in his field. Originally from Italy, Valter is a cell biologist who specializes in the mechanisms of aging in yeast, mice, and humans. His laboratory has identified genetic pathways that regulate aging in simple organisms and reduce the incidence of certain diseases in mice and humans. Valter has also developed a dietary regime – known as the fasting mimicking diet – that may reduce risk factors for aging in people. Mar 6, 2017
