Dr Valter Longo is the Edna M. Jones Professor of Gerontology and Biological Sciences and Director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California –Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, Los Angeles, one of the leading centres for research on ageing and age-related disease. Dr Longo is also the Director of the Longevity and Cancer Program at the IFOM Institute of Molecular Oncology in Milan, Italy.  The Longo laboratory published key findings on a 5-day periodic dietary intervention called Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), and showed in randomized clinical trials that FMD reduces the risk factors and markers associated with ageing and diseases. Dr Longo’s most recent studies focus on the use of FMD interventions to activate stem cell-based regeneration to promote longevity. This program can be purchased on and all profits go to charities or research.  Dr Longo has received numerous awards for his work and  In 2018 he was named by “Time Magazine” one of the 50 most influential people in health care for his research on fasting-mimicking diets as a way to improve health and prevent disease. books include the best seller “The Longevity Diet”.

Conflict of interest: Professor Longo donates all of the profits from his shares in the L-Nutra company to the Creates Cures Foundation, which is dedicated to helping find low-cost lifestyle therapies for the prevention and treatment of major diseases.
