The latest, and it looks promising. Humans aren’t rodents, but no reason in principle we shouldn’t be able to do similar things.
Intermittent fasting seems to help. I’ve been doing this as part of my weekday routine for a while. I go all day without eating until dinner time, other than coffee in the morning, but it’s mostly out of convenience rather than for health reasons. I’m glad to hear it might be good for me.
This seems like a very promising approach. First dogs, then use the revenue to do clinical trials on humans. I’m holding up pretty well for my age, but I’d really like to set the clock back.

I’d note that one of the “diseases of aging” listed is diabetes. I think it’s pretty clear at this point that this is mostly a problem of poor diet, based on decades of criminally terrible nutrition recommendations, and can largely be reversed by simply going keto. In fact, they’ve found that it can even be an effective treatment for Type 1 (and it was, prior to the development of insulin).

It may aid in the regeneration of stem cells. I do this almost every day. Not quite 24 hours, but I often don’t eat from when I go to bed until dinner the next evening. Other than morning coffee, which I don’t think would count, given its utter lack of nutrients.
Probably not news to my readers, but here’s a Reason interview with Nina Teicholz on how government recommendations have made America fat.
“A 2011 analysis of 52 claims made by nutritional epidemiology tested in 12 well controlled trials found that not one of the 52 claims—0%–could be confirmed.”
Another sterling example of “science.”

Broken link fixed, sorry.
Is it mathematically impossible?
I haven’t read the article in detail, but I doubt it. I suspect they’re going after a straw man.
One of the reasons I drink it; it may reduce coronary artery disease.
Not reasons I drink it? The taste, the after taste, and its affect on my alertness or mood in general, which is zero.
Rejuvenation through dietary supplements.
I’m already taking NAD+.
