Congratulatsions to Adam Dobson and Nazif Alic whose paper, "Nutritional Programming of Lifespan by FOXO Inhibition on Sugar-Rich Diets," has just been published in Cell Reports. Their study shows that a history of feeding on a high sugar-diet shortens lifespan and changes gene expression. These changes appear to be mediated by FoxO/Daf16 in both flies and worms More...
