Do These 4 Things, and Live a Longer, Healthier Life

A friend of mine always joked that healthy eating didn’t help you live longer, it just seemed longer. Well, now there’s proof. This week’s American Journal of Public Health reported on the lifestyle habits of nearly 17,000 adults and their risk of dying from chronic diseases. Do these 4 things, they concluded, and enjoy life a whole lot longer:

1. Don’t Smoke.
2. Eat Healthfully.
3. Exercise Regularly.
4. Go Easy on the Alcohol.

Happy early Birthday to Besse Berry Cooper–the world’s oldest person–who turns 115 on Friday this week! How does she do it? She minds her own business and doesn’t eat junk food. See?!
