Do you want to live longer? Now there’s proof that four healthy habits can increase lifespan by 14 years. A British study included 20,000 healthy people between the ages of 45 and 79. Those who filled up on fruits and veggies, exercised regularly, limited alcohol consumption and didn’t smoke lived an average of 14 years longer than those who didn’t abide by these healthy habits. The study followed participants for four years, and they got one point for not smoking, one for regular exercise, one for eating at least five servings of fruit and veg a day, and one for having no more than 14 drinks a week. After adjusting for age, those who scored zero were four times more likely to die than those who got full marks. Researchers say these results may support for the idea that even small differences in lifestyle may make a big difference to your health.
