In our conversation, we chat about his most recent study findings in caloric restriction and mimicking diets using a ketogenic diet on lifespan and health span, as well as a previous study examining varying fat sources (lard, soybean, and fish) and their effects on longevity and cell structure. It's a fascinating conversation! 

Dr. Jon Ramsey is a professor and faculty of Molecular Sciences at University of California, Davis, and studies the effects of caloric restriction and mimetics encompassing caloric restriction pathways on health and longevity. 

In our conversation, we chat about some of his most recent study findings in caloric restriction, fasting, and fasting mimetics with his newest publication examining ketogenic diets, as well as previous research examining consumption of different fats (lard, versus soybean, versus fish oil) on factors in longevity and cell structure in mice.  There were some very surprising results in both of these studies.
