Lifespan reduced by crash dieting30th April 2008
Researchers from Glasgow University say that binge eating and crash dieting may significantly reduce life expectancy.
The scientists put fish on a â€œbinge then dietâ€? food regime and discovered it reduced their lifespan by 25%. They believe the findings could have implications for teenagers and children who follow extreme patterns of dieting, because they are still in the growing stages of life. The study, conducted by researchers in the universityâ€™s faculty of biomedical and life sciences, is published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
