Starvation Linked To Cardiac Complications?

I love to post timely and factually correct information to this forum.  I am not sure the following article is correct.  I will merit the authors for doing research, but in my opinion, starvation in the animal experiments I have seen prolongs life to a certain extant. Who am I to judge?  Your opinions are welcome.  Happy Easter.

London -- Russians born during the Leningrad Siege in World War II, which was responsible for some of the greatest losses of civilian life in history, are giving scientists new strategies to identify people who experienced intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and starvation during childhood at greatest risk of developing long term heart complications. The abstract study¹, presented at the Frontiers in CardioVascular Biology (FCVB) meeting, in London, UK, 30 March to 1 April 2012, makes use of a unique population of people exposed to extreme starvation both as foetuses and during childhood.
