Severe Diet Doesn’t Prolong Life: monkey study

There is a general belief , based on mouse studies , that severe calorie restriction extends survival. This belief was seriously debunked by a study published today in the journal Nature. The researchers in the study followed 121 monkeys , of which 49 are still alive, randomly distributed between two groups : normal and calorie restricted.
The conclusion of the study is that there was no difference in survival between the 2 groups.
you can find the study here. While you read the study I'm ordering Mcdonalds.
