  WALFORD
Walford then explained that caloric restriction experiments repeated in his laboratory at UCLA on congenic colonies of mice and rats over the last two decades show that significant benefits obtain when animals are rigorously maintained on a calorie-restricted, but nutrient-rich, diet throughout their lives.
Obviously, Walford was sensitive to criticism that he was a radical among serious medical scientists, so on one slide he presented a political spectrum of relative positions which showed him in the middle as a "moderate" with a prediction of "120+" year lifespans in the next century.
Walford stated in conclusion that for the first time in human history, a significant number of individuals born in the next few years will have the nearly unique opportunity to live in three different centuries: The Twentieth, the Twenty-First, and the Twenty-Second (post 2100).

  Roy Walford: Not the Same Old Story
Walford, a longtime professor of pathology at the University of California, Los Angeles and author of more than 300 scientific papers, has conducted extensive research aimed at slowing the aging process and extending lifespan via calorie restriction, body temperature reduction, and the study of the role of histocompatibility (MHC) genes in aging.
Walford was so impressed by the findings that he keeps to a disciplined restricted-calorie diet.
Walford is also a member of the Explorer's Club, which is dedicated to the advancement of field research, scientific exploration, and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore.

  Roy Walford - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Walford is credited with significantly furthering research on the discovery that laboratory mice, when fed a diet that restricted their caloric intake by 50% yet maintained nutritional requirements, could more than double their expected life span.
Walford and his work were featured in print in dozens of articles in popular publications such as Omni, Discover, and Scientific American.
Walford was one of the eight “crew members” who were sealed inside Biosphere 2 where they lived from September 26, 1991- September 26, 1993.

 Discover: Staying ALIVE - Roy Walford, scientist, conducts various experiments to extend life
Walford believes that his diet of a mere 1,600 or so calories a day--about a third to a half less than a man his size would normally consume--will give him the best possible chance of living to 120.
Walford's new research is based on the fact that in mice and humans, the immune system malfunctions during aging, losing the ability to distinguish between healthy cells and invasive pathogens such as bacteria and viruses.
Walford and researchers have demonstrated that mice that eat only 60 percent of their preferred diet will live as long as 56 months--the equivalent of 165 human years--provided they start their diets before three months of age.

 Roy Walford
Over the course of a remarkable career, Dr. Roy Walford emerged as a leading authority on the biology of aging and the concept of using caloric restriction to combat the effects of aging and disease.
Walford’s main research focus was on the biology of aging, from the standpoints of immunology and molecular biology and with an emphasis on life extension technologies, such as calorie restriction, as experimental tools.
During that time, Dr. Walford conducted the first fully monitored experiment on humans of the type of calorie-restricted diet known to retard aging and extend life span in rodents and many other species.

 CNN.com - Eat less, and better, to live to 120? - September 12, 2000
Walford assures me this is not his usual midday repast: "I ate out last night and there were leftovers, so I brought them home." But the man is not the ascetic one might assume him to be.
Subsequent studies over the last 65 years (Walford estimates that there are 2,000 to 3,000 papers on the topic) have produced similar results and have also indicated that animals on calorie-restricted diets have a lower incidence of cancer, arteriosclerosis, and autoimmune disease.
Walford concedes that we don't know for sure whether what's true for rodents applies to humans, although ongoing studies at the University of Wisconsin and the NIA using monkeys as subjects may give us a better idea.
