Singapore study finds high-sugar diet helps worms live longer

According to a study published in the journal Nature Communicationsa studyscientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore)Find, when stress responses in cells are ‘switched on’ at post-reproductive age, may hold the key to slowing aging and extending lifespan. In laboratory experiments on a human-like nematode, a research team from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore found that by feeding older worms a high-glucose diet, this stress response was switched on, compared with worms on a normal diet. , can prolong their lifespan. This is the first time a link between stress response and aging has been found. “While our study found that a high-sugar diet may help delay aging and promote longevity in elderly nematodes, we do not recommend that older adults switch to a high-sugar diet now,” the scientists said.
