Practicing four simple, often enjoyable, everyday habits could dramatically increase your lifespan by helping stave off heart disease and other dangerous disorders, a new study published in American Journal of Epidemiology suggests.
In fact, people who practiced all four of the habits trimmed their risk for early death by an astonishing 80 percent. Researchers from Johns Hopkins also reported that these habits were particularly effective at preventing coronary heart disease, the leading killer of Americans.
The study included more than 6,200 men and women, ages 44 to 84, from ethnically diverse backgrounds. At the start of the study, participants were given lifestyle scores ranging from zero (least healthy) to 4 (most healthy) based on four factors: their diet, body mass index (BMI), level of moderate exercise, and smoking status, then their health was tracked for an average of 7.6 years.
