Feast or famine, but maybe not both. New data suggest that drosophila switching from #caloricrestriction to a calorie-rich diet had shorter average lifespan than those who ate a high calorie diet the whole time. #livebetterlonger https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2020-02/uos-nrc022020.php

You can choose your diet, but can your cardiomyocytes? In mice, switching them back to glucose (like during development) might improve their regenerative capacity and prevent #heartfailure. #livebetterlonger https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2020-02/usmc-cwh022120.php

We know about exercising to help your brain, but what about the reverse? A new study from Berkeley found that glial cells (neuronal support cells) send long-lasting signals to support muscle cells and increase lifespan in C. elegans #livebetterlonger https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2020-02/uoc--bcp022120.php

Not only is the microbiome important for #immune regulation, but there are distinct niches with cell-type specific activation. Lots of great new insights from the @humancellatlas and @sangerinstitute #livebetterlonger https://zcu.io/tqO1
