This article may be of some interest to those on the list:

JT Proceedings of the national academy of sciences DA OCT 27 1998 v 95 n 22
PG 13091
AU Lakowski, Bernard
AU Hekimi, Siegfried
TI The genetics of caloric restriction in Caenorhabditis elegans.

Doing a quick search on Medline brings up lots of studys on calorie restriction. Are any extropians practising it? Is there a threshold that needs to be reached for it to work effectively or is any CR good (so long as you aren't missing out on adequate nutrients)?

thanks, patrick
