Vegan diet reduces signs of aging

Choosing to graze from the salad bar the next time you're at a restaurant isn't just good for your diet - it also reverses the aging process.

University of California researchers collected blood samples from 10 men with prostate cancer who switched to a vegan diet, increased their exercise, and attended weekly stress reduction sessions.

After three months, the men experienced changes that are thought to protect genes from deteriorating.

Five years later, the men who continued the diet had fewer signs of genetic aging than those who did not participate in the program.
