Research finds that fasting "flipped a regenerative switch" leading to new blood and new immune system creation - in just 72 hours
Results from a recent study fall into the category of "remarkable," as it was described.
Researchers from University of Southern California were looking for extra immune help for chemotherapy patients, and found an answer for everyone. For chemo patients, the elderly, the chronically ill, even those with auto immune diseases.
Longer fasts use up the body's glucose stores, but they also breakdown and rebuild the white blood cells - literally rebuilding a new immune system.
