Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*) A Longer Lifespan—No Dieting RequiredWe’ve known for decades that when animals eat dramatically less, they live longer and stay healthier. But surviving on far fewer calories is no picnic. Now, using a specific molecule produced every day by our own cells, researchers might have found another way to prolong our lifespan—no extreme dieting required.Lectures Aren’t Just Boring, They’re Ineffective, Too Are your lectures droning on?

Eight weeks ago, researchers reported finding evidence of the massive inflation of our universe immediately following the big bang.
