Though there is no real fountain of youth that will keep you sprightly in perpetuity, there are certain things you can control in order to live a healthier, longer life. According to new research in the UK, people who live a healthy lifestyle reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases by almost 80 percent. The study defined healthy living as those who exercise for at least three and a half hours per week and eat a diet that’s high in fruits, vegetables, grains, and low in red meat. Of those studied who adhered to this definition, 93 percent were less likely to develop diabetes, 81 percent less likely to have a heart attack, and 50 percent less likely to have a stroke. It’s time to load up your plates with greens and grains and get movin’!
