There is a balance to be sought for in most things. If a reduced metabolic rate means obesity, that usually equals a shorter life span, given that most people are not going to eat less as they get older.  And the immune system's functions, while usually helpful, can also be detrimental, such as in autoimmune disease and inflammation.  However, the article states, "excess levels of immune suppressor cells can prematurely turn critical immune functions "off", so suppressing them is of importance in individuals seeking enhanced immune activity."
