Alternate Day Fasting Slows Progression of Glaucoma in an Animal Model

Calorie restriction is here demonstrated to slow the progression of glaucoma in a mouse model of the condition, without affecting the rising pressure inside the eye that is usually the cause of harm. It is an interesting demonstration of the way in which the shifts in cellular metabolism that occur with calorie restriction prime cells to be more resistant to a range of stresses that typically cause significant amounts of cell death: Glaucoma is characterized by progressive degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and their axons.
