Roy Lee Walford, M. June 29, - April 27, was a professor of pathology at University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine , a leading advocate of calorie restriction for life extension and health improvement, and a crew member of Biosphere 2. He received his medical degree from the University of Chicago in He completed his internship at Gorgas Hospital , Panama , and served his residency at the V.
Medical Center in Los Angeles. His honors and awards include: . Walford and his work were featured in print in dozens of articles in popular publications such as Omni , Discover , and Scientific American. During his life he also made dozens of featured appearances on various television shows. In , while on vacation during medical school, Walford and Albert Hibbs , a mathematics graduate student, used statistical analysis of biased roulette wheels to "break the bank" in Reno.
They tracked the results of the spins, determined which wheels were biased, and then bet heavily on the ones which were unbalanced.
The casinos eventually realized that Walford and his friend knew what they were doing and threw them out. A Life Magazine photographer captured the pair drinking milk and counting their chips in a photograph published in the December 8, issue. The pair also bought a yacht and sailed the Caribbean for over a year. In , Walford began a commercial collaboration with fellow researchers Richard Weindruch and Kathleen Yankee Hall, and her husband William Hall, a wealthy businessman. In her tribute after his death, Kathleen Hall wrote of Walford, "we both threw in a few thousand dollars and started a small business together.
The first Gerontix product was butylated hydroxytoluene BHT , with lysine and zinc, which was sold in capsules and marketed as a treatment for herpes. It was expected that Walford, a highly publicized researcher, would experience the same success as Pearson and Shaw.
Before Walford's book was published and Gerontix started to manufacture its coordinated products, the manufacturer Twin Labs began to sell a single multi-ingredient supplement called MaxiLIFE.
Despite the potential for trademark conflict, the Gerontix group elected to proceed with plans to use the name. Twin Labs brought suit against Gerontix for trademark infringement, which it won in Before the resolution of the lawsuit, the Gerontix MaxiLife  products were brought to market and sold poorly, partly because of the lackluster sales of Walford's book. Lack of success in federal court and in health food stores led to the demise of Gerontix.
The company's MaxiLife product brochure, which refers to Walford and his research, also makes no mention of his connection to Gerontix. Walford served as the crew's physician.
During his stay in Biosphere 2, the crew found that they could not grow as much food as anticipated, so Walford convinced the crew to follow his calorie restriction diet. At age 79, Roy Walford died of respiratory failure as a complication of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS , commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
According to Walford's friend and colleague, Kathleen Hall, his diagnosis of ALS came as a result of her urging him to see a physician when she noticed "the strangeness in Roy's gait. He had me all over New York and in Dallas for just the right production shots. I found myself scouting the alleys of Chinatown in New York searching out a particular mushroom, looking for the best grass to help him through the pain. Walford was survived by his three children, Peter, Morgan, and Lisa Walford.
Their mother was Martha Sylvia Schwalb, to whom Walford was married for 20 years before divorcing in the s. Walford's death from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis has provoked consideration about whether his practice of caloric restriction CR may have contributed to, or accelerated, his development of the disease.
Hamadeh et al. Previously, Pedersen and Mattson found that in the ALS mouse model, CR "accelerates the clinical course" of the disease and had no benefits. Walford himself speculated that his disease may have been caused by the combination of chronic hypoxia and exposure to carbon monoxide and nitrous oxide in Biosphere 2. Walford authored several books, and set out his dietary beliefs in the bestseller Beyond the Year Diet. In addition, he published at least scientific papers, mainly focused on the biology of aging.

There is experimental evidence that calorie restriction can slow biological aging in mammals such as mice and monkeys,   but the long-term effects in humans remain unknown. The subjects ate a diet low in fat and in calories but "nutrient-dense", derived from the food crops raised inside the Biosphere. The writer Christopher Turner in The Telegraph reported that Walford claimed that the diet "will retard your rate of ageing, extend lifespan up to perhaps to years, depending on when you start and how thoroughly you hold to it , and markedly decrease susceptibility to most major diseases.
A review of the effects of calorie restriction in humans by Anna Picca and colleagues in noted that direct evidence was limited to what had been "recorded from the members of the Calorie Restriction Society, who have imposed on themselves a regimen of severe CR with optimal nutrition CRON , believing to extend in this way their healthy lifespan.
The review observed that one outcome had been the development of calorie restriction mimetic drugs which would be tested in clinical trials on humans. She wrote that Walford had written a book about the diet called Beyond the Year Diet , in which a "typical dinner" consisted of salad, lentils, brown rice, bulgur , a stalk of broccoli, and a glass of skimmed milk.
But she was pleased that she once again could experience loose-fitting pants. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Main article: Calorie restriction. The Telegraph. CR Society International. Retrieved 29 July Brian M.
