Nutrition is known to be one of the major factors that affect the rate at which people age and their life expectancy. This is because good nutritional habits decrease the rate of cellular degeneration, and significantly slow down the rate at which people age. A number of tests were done on mice and the findings were consistent with the above. The findings also show why many people in Western societies are suffering from diet-induced health problems.
