CTDL 012: Long life anti-depressant

I’ve read some interesting literature on the science of starvation based longevity. They’re interesting, but not compelling me to give up my morning coffee or Oreo cookies.  What I’m thinking is a better option is the information they’re gleaning from nematodes (not from Mr Squarepants) according to the BBC.  After giving them an anti-depressant they’re living longer. The theory is that the drug is tricking their brain into thinking that they’re starving, without being hungry.
