I have have heared that higher mTor levels lead to a shorter live span. Now high protein diets and strength training or bodybuilding tend to rise the mTor level. So you might think that such a fitness lifestyle leads to a lower lifespan.

But as always you need to check the details before making such a conclusion. So, is there any scientific evidence of this claim? Or may it be falsified?

What are the details of the claim that higher mTor levels result in a shorter lifespan and what is a "high level" in this case? Is it about constant high levels or about spikes? How does this compare to what is induced by high protein diets and bodybuilding?
