Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Valter Longo is one of the world’s leading researchers on longevity, and in this book he’s done an exemplary job of consolidating the most current strategies into easy to understand principles. In particular, his research on fasting is one of the most fascinating new strategies to improve health and longevity."
—Joseph Mercola, DO, Founder of Mercola.com, the most visited natural health site on the internet

"Valter Longo is a terrific scientist who writes beautifully and, this book is the culmination of many years of work, the product of a real passion to understand the underlying mechanisms behind diet, disease and longevity. What he has already shown through his lab work, and what his human studies are making clear, is that it is possible, through the right diet, to turn back the clock, put ourselves on the road to good health. I hope this book is as widely read as it deserves to be."
—Dr Michael Mosley, BBC science journalist and author of The Fast Diet
 
"Dr. Longo has put together a flawless formula for a daily diet and periodic fasting that optimizes the newest and best data available for a healthy brain, body and mind. Safe to say there is probably none better!"
—Rudolph E. Tanzi, PhD, Professor of Neurology at Harvard University, Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, and author of the New York Times bestseller Super Brain

"There is an ever-increasing recognition that diet plays a critical role in lifespan and healthspan. Valter Longo is a pioneer in advancing research in this field. In the Longevity Diet he translates his laboratory expertise into user-friendly tips and tools for improving how we eat, how we age, and how we live."
– Pinchas Cohen, M.D., Dean, University of Southern California Leonard Davis School of Gerontology

"The health benefits associated with periodic fasting are as striking as they are surprising. Here, Dr. Valter Longo, a recognized leader in the field, embarks on an odyssey through the major chronic diseases that are currently plaguing humanity and shows that they are all modifiable by diets that mimic the fasted state."
– Brian Kennedy, Director of the Centre for Healthy Ageing and Professor in Biochemistry and Physiology, National University Singapore 

About the Author

Valter Longo is the director of the Longevity Institute at USC in Los Angeles, and of the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM (Molecular Oncology FIRC Institute) in Milan. His studies focus on the fundamental mechanisms of aging in simple organisms and mice and on how they can be translated to humans. Dr. Longo received the 2010 Nathan Shock Lecture Award from the National Institute on Aging (NIA/NIH) and the 2013 Vincent Cristofalo "Rising Star" Award in Aging Research from the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR).
