BBC Documentary on Fasting

Below are four links to the same BBC documentary. It's about 58 minutes long. The host of the show talked to various experts on fasting and then did each kind of fast himself, testing his bio-markers before and after each regimen to see what effects the fast had on his body.

According to these researchers, fasting improves your reaction time (reversing the normal age-related decline), improves your balance (again, reversing the normal age-related decline), prevents both heart disease and cancer, and stimulates your brain to create new brain cells (which delays or prevents Alzheimer's disease). And this is not optimistic, pie-in-the-sky conjecture. The researchers are drawing these conclusions by looking at real data.
