The evidence continues to accumulate—a healthy lifestyle in middle-age improves the length and quality of life. Using data from two very large cohorts, researchers looked at the associations between five low-risk lifestyle factors and mortality over 30 years. A healthy diet, never smoking, moderate-to-vigorous physical activity for 30 minutes/day or more, a healthy weight, and no excessive alcohol consumption resulted in a 74% reduced mortality risk.
