Overall, it seems that the best way of living longer is CR combined
with a suitable level of exercise. The body can handle free radicals
quite well, and the small increase due to the exercise is offset by
the improvements in health.

That an ordinary healthy human should not try a parenteral diet is
fairly obvious (what is the point, really?), but as far I know there
are a few people who have survived on a parenteral diet for years
after massive intestinal failure.

But doesn't the lung capacity and red blood cell count increase,
leading to a similar oxygen saturation?
