Life expectancy in the United States is just under 79 years old. This is not at all the small state of Monaco, which has the highest life expectancy – 89.73 years. For years, people have been trying to unravel the secrets to living a long life. Thanks to the new research, more light has been shed on how you can search for longevity and live to a healthy environment 100.
In a study of 50-year on longevity, by the Department of Health Sciences at the University of Gothenburg Sweden, it has identified a combination of factors to be considered for long life. These conclusions are based on the lives of Gothenburg 855 men born in 1913 and closely observed and studied.
Men answers to detailed questions about their habits, health and family life at age 54, 60, 65, 70, 80 and, in some cases, 100. As the surveys were conducted, the researchers considered factors that seem to promote longevity.
Twenty-seven members of the original group of men in the study lived to 80 years of age, 13 percent lived to 90, and 1.1 percent lived in 100.
How to live to 100
After taking all data and longevity factors into consideration, the Swedish research team came up with the following list that can help extend your life:
- If you are a nonsmoker
- Limit coffee intake
- Maintain healthy cholesterol levels
- Have a good socioeconomic status
- remain physically active in their 50s
- Having a mother who lived a long life.
While we can not control genetics, we can control the lifestyle. To what extent genetics and lifestyle contribute to a long life it is still hotly debated worldwide. Many health scientists say that genetics plays a secondary role. In Monaco, for example, where life expectancy is higher, food choices are often based on a Mediterranean diet. This can include a lot of seafood, which is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. The diet also includes many fresh fruits and vegetables.
longevity What really crucial?
Medical experts at Stanford University agree that lifestyle is an important factor of influence when it comes to longevity. In fact, they go so far as to say filled with fruits and vegetables can add five years to your life. They also suggest that exercise five days a week can add two to four years to your life.
certainly they have come a long way when it comes to life expectancy. The dramatic increase in life expectancy during the 20th century ranks as one of the greatest achievements of society. Much of this is due to medical advances and the fact that we are better educated about our bodies. Doctors say it is natural that many people want to live longer.
In the US, the number of people aged 100 years or is thought to be around 70,000. If people continue to follow a healthy lifestyle, that number is expected to increase to nearly one million in 2050 to be 100 looks better than ever.
These days, modern medicine has improved so much that doctors are able to treat various diseases, prolong life. However, there is still no mechanism to stop the deterioration of the body as it passes through the natural aging process. As it turns out, however, all you may need is a good old-fashioned “cleaning” for your brain to slow the clock. It all starts with the food you eat every day.
Have you ever thought you and a bottle of wine can have many things in common? (And I do not mean your entire body!) The wine and sits and ages, the better and more enjoyable it becomes. Well, today science suggests the same is true for the elderly and aging is not at all negative at all!
