why we fast on religious occasions?

To rebuild your immune system, fast 8 days an year

​New York: Here’s news for those who hate fasting. Starving for just eight days a year can bolster your immune system like never before.

​Fasting encourages body to replace old and damaged cells – especially, if the immune system has been damaged by aging or cancer treatment, researchers said.
​“When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged” explained Valter Longo, a longevity expert from the University of Southern California.

​During the study, the researchers found fasting for two to four days every six months forced the body into survival mode – using up stores of fat and sugar and breaking down old cells.

​The body sends a signal telling to regenerate and rebuild the entire system. “With a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or ageing, fasting cycles can generate a new immune system” Longo noted.
