Dietary restriction uniquely and robustly increases maximum lifespan and greatly reduces age-related diseases in many species, including yeast, flies, nematodes, and mammals. To study mechanisms mediating the protective effects of dietary restriction, the National Institute of Aging convened a program involving several leading gerontological laboratories. Results from many of these, as well as from other leading research institutions in the field, are presented in this book. The first three papers address general molecular mechanisms, derived in part from recent DNA microarray studies, that may mediate protective effects of dietary restriction. The subsequent articles examine specific model systems, including flies, nematodes and non-human primates, that have provided exciting new information about these mechanisms. Finally, mechanisms of dietary restriction mediating protective effects against cancer and neurological diseases are discussed. In addition to gerontologists and geriatricians, many other medical and nonmedical professionals in the field will find a great wealth of information on possible interventions that may ameliorate age-related diseases.

LINQ Unleashed: for C# By the time you are holding this book in your hands, I will have 30 years in since the first time I wrote some code. That code was ROM-BASIC on a TRS-80 in Washington grammar school in Owosso, Michigan, and I was in the fifth grade. Making the "tank" slide back and forth shooting blips across the screen was neat. Changing the code to... Mass Spectrometry in Cancer Research

Meaning and Mystery: What It Means To Believe in God
Meaning and Mystery offers a challenge to the way Philosophy has traditionally approached the issue of belief in God as a theoretical problem, proposing instead a form of reflection more appropriate to the practical nature of the issue.
- Makes use of abundant illustrative material, from both literature, such as Les...
