Always up for a challenge professionally, the actor has been breaking taboos since his first film as a sperm donor. This year, the world woke up to what he has always believed in: That the story is the real hero and superscripts make superstars. With 'Badhaai Ho', an out-of-the box quirky comedy revolving around a surprise pregnancy, and 'AndhaDhun' , a bizarre ride with eye-popping consequences, Ayushmann is sitting pretty at the top of the heap even as other matinee idols collapsed around him and his own world cracked with a unexpected diagnosis of cancer for his wife.

Researchers at the University of Sao Paulo (USP) have found that restricting calories in the diet have multiple health benefits. The research conducted on mice has found various adaptive metabolism including an increase in the blood flow and various other adaptation to the climate change.According to a research paper published in the journal Cell Reports, two sets of mice were set for the study. One set of mice was allowed to eat as much as they can while the other set was given controlled calories of food, which accounts to 60 percent nutrients consumed by the first group.After conducting experiments for six months, it was found that the body mass and weight of mice, which were on controlled diet, was 40 percent lower than the first group.

The adaptive response of the body to the fat loss had resulted in uniform, thicker and longer fur in the CR model … [Read more...] about Less calorie consumption improves body’s adaptive metabolism
