Since 1979 Professor Peter Elwood and his team of researchers from Cardiff University School of Medicine have tracked the lifestyle habits of 2500 men aged 45-59 (at the start of the study). They found that men that followed 5 habits had 70% less chance of developing diabetes, 60% reduced incidents of heart attacks and strokes, 40% fewer cancers, and a reduction of 60% in cases of dementia. Incidentally, less than 1% of the study group followed all 5 habits! These 5 habits have the potential to reduce illness and chronic disease and so promote longevity…what are they?

The 5 habits of highly healthy people are:

  • regular exercise
  • no smoking
  • a healthy bodyweight
  • a healthy diet
  • a low alcohol intake

Not rocket science by any means…and definitely within everyone’s grasp!
