THE ITALIAN LIFESTYLE OF
PROF. VALTER LONGO
"Grazie mille Stefania! Buon lavoro ! "
Originally from Genoa, Italy, Dr. Longo grew up in Molochio, Calabria, one of the small towns in Italy known for its incredible longevity. He goes back every year to discover the secret of longevity.
TOO MUCH PROTEIN COULD LEAD TO EARLY DEATH,
FOR LONGEVITY, EAT PLANTS, REDUCE PROTEINS AND TRY "FASTING MIMICKING DIET"-
Dr. Longo and his team found that individuals aged 50–65 years who reported eating a high-protein diet (with more than 20 percent of their calories coming from protein) were four times more likely to die of cancer or diabetes. He says many middle-aged Americans, along with an increasing number of people around the world, are eating twice and sometimes three times as much protein as they need. “The best change would be to lower the daily intake of all proteins, but especially animal-derived proteins.”
