Five habits may decrease risk of heart disease and cancer, increasing life expectancy by more than 10 years, study suggests
USA Today (4/30, Molina) reports researchers found that “following five healthy habits could drastically cut your risk for heart disease or cancer and potentially add more than 10 years to your life.” The five habits are: “eating healthy, exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy body weight, not smoking, and moderate alcohol consumption.” The findings were published in the journal Circulation.
In “Science Now,” the Los Angeles Times (4/30, Kaplan) reports the researchers found that women with the five healthy habits “lived about 14 years longer than women who followed none of them,” while “the difference was about 12 years” for men.
