The United States population is aging rapidly, and understanding the potential impact and feasibility of lifestyle interventions on the aging process is of central importance for addressing future population health and health care costs. This symposium addressed the question of whether caloric restriction may be a feasible strategy to improve human health by reductions in rates of primary and secondary aging in humans, viewed from the perspective of existing data in animal models, and by using emerging data from the human Comprehensive Assessment of Long-Term Reduction in Energy Intake trial, which is a randomized trial of human caloric restriction in free-living men and women.
