Oscar Isacsson 1 Oscar Isacsson Professor Luttich English 170 Section 8 4 Nov 2010 Benefits of Intermittent Fasting: Annotated Bibliography Bellisle, France, Regina McDevitt, and Andrew M. Prentice.

This book show has extensive research on intermittent fasting and it shows clearly shows benefits such as improved immune defense, longer life, increased cardiovascular function, and the positives impacts on the brain. The author claims that intermittent fasting has beneficial results and his work evaluates the results on a broader base by including more effects than just the life span. The study was conducted for 18 years which gives his work more credibility because the long term effects has been recorded more accurately. The study is done on primates which makes it easier to draw conclusions between humans and animals because of the similarities in DNA structure. I will use this source because it is the first alternate day fasting study performed on monkeys which makes results more applicable to humans, and because it investigates more than just the life span.
