How to Live to 100

Yo YoPro!  Want to live to be 100?  Well it isn’t easy, but with the right habits and a little luck, science says you can.  Researchers from the Boston University School of Public Health have found that genetics only account for 20 to 30% of a person’s chance of living into very old age.  That means the remaining 70 to 80% is up to you — and here’s how to do it:

Eat well

There aren’t any secrets here.  You’ll need to eat a balanced diets of whole grains, fruits, veggies, and a moderate amount of meat (not too much red meat).  Keeping a healthy weight is pretty key.  Alcohol is okay in moderation — especially red wine.

Stay active

Love and be loved
