Scientists have tests on mice showing that fasting could many health benefits. Fasting is eating or drinking very little or nothing for a short period of time. It usually around 24 hours but can for a few days. The tests were out by scientists at universities in the USA and Italy. They that occasional fasting in mice could the risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other diseases. The scientists mice for four days on a low-calorie, low-protein and low-carbohydrate but high-fat diet. They then the mice just 10% of their normal calorie intake for three days. The scientists this diet made the pancreas in the mice work better.

The pancreas is an organ in the body that special cells called beta cells to the hormone insulin. The body uses insulin to down glucose (a kind of sugar) in the blood. People with diabetes trouble producing enough insulin so they health problems because there is too much sugar in their blood. This can death. In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas stops producing insulin. In type 2 diabetes, either not enough insulin is or the insulin that is produced has no effect. Scientists the mice on the fasting diet produced increased amounts of beta cells and insulin. They said their results very promising and that tests now need to be on humans.
