When you eat may be just as important to heart health as what you eat, according to researchers from San Diego State University and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. The researchers, whose findings were published in the journal Science , found that by limiting the time span during which fruit flies could eat, they could prevent aging- and diet-related heart problems.

A new class of drugs identified and validated by Mayo Clinic researchers along with collaborators at Scripps Research Institute and others, clearly reduces health problems in mice by limiting the effect of senescent cells — cells that contribute to frailty and diseases associated with age. The researchers say this is a first step toward developing similar treatments for aging patients. Their findings were published March 9 th 2015 in the journal Aging Cell .
