Diet, longevity and fertility


The right diet may help us live longer and improve our fertility - but apparently not the same diet say scientists!

Scientists at my alma mater, The University of Sydney, have found that in mammals there is an ideal balance of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat) for reproduction and another, different ideal balance for increasing the lifespan.

The key finding was that lifespan was enhanced on a high carbohydrate, low protein diet, and reproduction was enhanced on a high protein, low carbohydrate diet in mice. This seems to tie in with other research showing that a high protein diet is not beneficial for longevity as age advances."Animals don't have to choose between high fertility and a long life. By managing diet throughout our life cycle, we can have both." says one of the co-leads of the study.

The findings open the door for the development of dietary treatments for infertility in humans.
