The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has started a campaign to warn people that burnt toast, over-roasted potatoes, and starchy foods cooked at higher temperatures can cause cancer. Cook food only to a golden color as brown and black can be unhealthy for you.
The NIA researchers have found that adult rhesus monkeys who ate 30 per cent less food lived longer and faced fewer instances of cancer, heart diseases, and insulin resistance. Male monkeys lived two years longer while female monkeys lived six years longer. A similar caloric restriction regimen in humans could translate to live longer for 18 years.
