Blog: I want to live forever
Catherine Sleep | 14 September 2004
Not me, actually, no such delusions here. But around 1000 people worldwide, mostly men, have drastically cut back their calorie intake in the hope of resisting disease and beating the ageing process.
Their decision is informed by research which shows that mice live longer if they’re half-starved. These guys hope to live long enough to see the advent of an anti-ageing cure. We’re talking 122 years and upwards. The trouble is that to restrict their calories, they end up feeling weak and lethargic, as their bodies are using all their energy supplies just to sustain vital functions.
Sounds mad to me. Surely it’s quality of life that matters, not just clocking up the years.
