• Ce que vous mangez peut-il déterminer la durée et la qualité de votre vie ? La réponse est oui. Mais un oui cliniquement prouvé. Près de trente années de recherches sur les liens entre la nutrition, les gènes, le vieillissement et les maladies ont permis au Pr Valter Longo d'élaborer une stratégie unique pour avancer dans l'âge en bonne santé. Comment ? En adoptant au quotidien son régime de longévité et en pratiquant trois à quatre fois par an une Fasting-Mimicking Diet (FMD) - littéralement une diète qui imite les effets du jeûne - cinq jours durant. Grâce à la FMD, vous tirerez tous les bénéfices du jeûne sans en subir les inconvénients (la faim, le manque d'énergie, les difficultés d'endormissement, etc.). Les effets de cette stratégie combinée : une perte de poids et une réduction du tour de taille ; un allongement significatif de la durée de vie ; une prévention de la perte de masse musculaire et osseuse ; une protection contre les maladies. De quoi vivre sainement, longtemps et... pleinement !
    Valter Longo dirige l'Institut de la longévité de l'université de Californie du Sud (Los Angeles) et le Programme oncologie & longévité à l'Institut Firc d'oncologie moléculaire (IFOM, Milan), qui compte parmi les meilleurs organismes de recherche européens sur le cancer. Il s'est fait internationalement connaître par ses travaux sur le jeûne, en montrant ses effets bénéfiques dans le traitement du cancer.

  • Le secret d'une longue vie ? Tout commence dès l'enfance. Tout commence même dès avant la naissance, affirme le Pr Valter Longo. La manière dont une mère s'alimente influe sur le futur état de santé de son enfant. Longo met l'accent sur la grossesse et sur les premières années de la vie. Ce que mange un enfant et son style de vie détermineront le risque qu'il
    aura de développer des maladies à l'âge adulte et sa longévité.
    Avec la collaboration d'une équipe de pédiatres et de nutritionnistes, Valter Longo a élaboré une diététique optimisant la croissance, le bonheur et la santé de l'enfant et de l'adolescent, tout en encourageant des habitudes qui combattent la prise de poids et l'altération des gènes.
    Cet ouvrage, destiné aussi bien à prévenir qu'à guérir, s'adresse aux futures mères, aux parents, aux pédiatres et nutritionnistes, mais aussi à tous ceux dont le métier est d'accompagner des enfants et des adolescents.

  • Can what you eat determine how long, and how well, you live? The clinically proven answer is yes, and The Longevity Diet is easier to follow than you'd think. The culmination of 25 years of research on ageing, nutrition, and disease across the globe, this unique combination of an everyday diet and fasting-mimicking diet (FMD) to be done only 3-4 times per year lays out a simple solution to living to a healthy old age through nutrition.FMD does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while fasting and helps you reap all the beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet while avoiding the negative stressors, like low energy and sleeplessness. Valter Longo, Director of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan, developed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice and humans indicating that specific diets can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to reduce the risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's and heart disease. Longo's simple pescatarian daily eating plan and the periodic, fasting-mimicking techniques can both yield impressive results. Low in proteins and sugars and rich in healthy fats and plant-based foods, The Longevity Diet is clinically proven to help you: - Lose weight and reduce abdominal fat
    - Make simple changes which can extend the healthy lifespan
    - Prevent age-related muscle and bone loss
    - Build your resistance to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and cancerLongo's healthy, life span-extending plan is based on an easy-to-adopt pescatarian plan along with the fasting-mimicking diet 4 times a year, and just 5 days at a time.

  • Modern Management of Cancer of the Rectum is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of all aspects of rectal neoplasms. It addresses epidemiology, biology, screening and chemoprevention, the role of imaging in diagnosis, staging and prognosis, radiation therapy, medical and surgical treatment, as well as new modalities of therapy, including laparoscopy, and transanal endoscopic surgery. A greater understanding of prognostic factors, patterns of spread and natural history has occurred during the past decade; together with new diagnostic modalities this has led to significant changes in the management of patients with rectal cancer. This book will be invaluable for all those who treat rectal cancer.
