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...
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19870167/

found it interesting that they used the term "fasting" and not "low calorie diet"..
Quote:
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
Quote:
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.
