In this discussion the two cover a vast array of topics on intermittent fasting, a field in which Dr Valter Longo is a leading expert. The video highlights several potential applications for intermittent fasting and Dr Longo’s fasting mimicking diet in treating several diseases including cancer. The video outlines how fasting mimicking diets cause the replacement of damaged cells and how fasting can reduce inflammation which is the cause of several diseases and is also a reliable biomarker for aging.
As always with Dr Rhonda Patrick’s videos there is a lot of very technical science but that’s partly why the video is so fascinating and worth watching.
