Will L. reuteri yogurt EXTEND life?

Among the many powerful and life-changing effects of Lactobacillus reuteri ATCC PTA 6475 yogurt that increases oxytocin levels is a reduction in appetite, the so-called anorexigenic effect. If you experience this effect, you know that you have provoked oxytocin. And it can be quite profound. Food still tastes good, but you have far less interest in it.

Follow this reasoning: We know that, in numerous experimental models such as dogs and mice, reduction in calorie intake considerably lengthens life.
