Study claims intermittent fasting may help fight cancer and slow the ageing process ￼
With new variations to diets every day, a study by the Professor of Neuroscience at the John Hopkins University School of Medicine has revealed that intermittent fasting may well help in fighting cancer and contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Neuroscientist Mark Mattson is quoted by a publication, “A switch occurs when cells use up their stores of rapidly accessible, sugar-based fuel, and begin converting fat into energy in a slower metabolic process.”
Mark Mattson’s study was published in the English Journal of Medicine and his study showed that the switch to intermittent fasting helps improve the blood sugar regulation and increases resistance to stress as it helps suppress inflammation. At the same time, Ahmedbadmirror.com quotes, “Preliminary studies showed that intermittent fasting could benefit brain health too.” However, it is pertinent to mention that there are a lot more studies to be done to prove that intermittent fasting cana ctually help.
