Make four lifestyle changes and you’ll likely live 14 years longer. That’s the word from a British study. None of the participates had heart disease or cancer at the start of the study. Every person’s blood was tested to measure vitamin C intake, an indicator of how much fruit and vegetables people eat. Each person was assigned a score of between 0 and 4 — with one point give for each of the healthy behaviors. So what are the four secrets to a longer life?
- Don’t smoke
- Eat five servings a day of fruits and vegetables
- Drink alcohol in moderation.
- Exercise regularly 30 minutes a day
