70 and Older? Good Health Habits Still Count

Researchers found that women in their 70s who were the most physically active and ate the most fruits and vegetables lived the longest. A healthy diet and high levels of physical activity are the strongest predictors of health and a long life.

It’s never too late to start living well. A study from Sweden showed a healthy lifestyle added five years to a woman’s life and six years to men’s. The researchers followed over 1,800 older adults for 18 years and half lived longer than 90 years. The longest living individuals lead the healthiest lives. Bottom line: live well, live long.
