Did they look at these lifestyle changes separately or was this another one of these studies that fails to control all the variables. Do we know if you need all the changes is just high veg, or low fat or exercise enough on its own?

Great video thanks for posting! I had no idea that telomeres could get longer because of an improved lifestyle.

I have no doubt that a vegetarian diet is a significant improvement over the modern junk food diet that most people eat. It's a bonus point for sure. The only thing I'd add that is that a balanced, calorie restricted diet is probably better still. I hope they test that hypothesis someday.

No. It was a combination of the three (diet, exercise, stress-management). I personally believe diet played the major role (75% or so). Research also from the Pritikin-longevity center found that prostate cancer cells could undergo apoptosis in-vitro by going on a low-fat/high-fiber complex carbohydrate diet combined with exercise. The same diet reverses atherosclerosis and type-2 diabetes.

A low-fat/high-fiber diet is a calorie-restricted diet. Fat is calorically-dense, it contains over twice the calories of carbohydrate! Fiber contains no calories at all, so eating a low-fat/high-fiber diet, effortlessly reduces the amount of calories you eat, without restricting the amount of food you eat.
