Default Less Insulin in Brain = Long Life

Nothing that we don't already know and encourage...but good to see it getting some mainstream attention...

found it interesting that they used the term "fasting" and not "low calorie diet"..
So White’s team sought to see if the two effects were linked. They looked at insulin, because both fasting and exercise make cells more insulin-sensitive, meaning they respond more efficiently to the effects of insulin.
I found this interesting note too
The findings also raise questions about how desirable it is to use insulin to treat type 2 diabetes, said the researchers.
Again...nothing new but leads me to believe there is a little hope for mankind...

Mike, there is no hope for mankind, we're all going to die if we last until the heat death of the universe - unless there are multiple universes and we figure out a way to escape into one that is hospitible for life.

Of course, keeping our brains insulin sensitive will surely help to make it to that point.
