Meta-analytic evidence for the anti-aging effect of hormesis on Caenorhabditis elegans

Figure 2. Association of hormesis and mean lifespan. The diamond represented the combined effect size of mean lifespan. The red-dotted-line was invalid, and if the diamond did not intersect with it, meaning that hormesis could significantly extend (on the right) or limit (on the left) the mean lifespan of C. elegans (p < 0.05).
