Will You Live To 100?


From anti-ageing supplements to restrictive diets, scientists & researchers have been constantly trying to add years to your life while the comedians have been trying the other way round – adding life to your years.. But here’s the truth on what will get you to ripe old age and #whats just hype.

The Thinner You Are, The Longer You’ll Live. (True/False)

Ans. False. Underweight People have shorter life span than their in-shape peers, as do people who are obese. Older women with just a few extra kilos are actually protected against age-related conditions.

Sleeping at least 8 hours a night can add several years to your life. (True/False)

Ans. False. People who sleep 5 to 7 hours a night have better survival rates than those who sleep 8 or more, or 4 or less, according to a study from the University of California, San Diego. Too much snoozing could be a sign of depression or other health issues.

Early Retirement will protect you from life-shortening job stress. (True/False)

Ans. False. Keeping busy may be the key to living longer. One study found that people who retired at age 65 outlived the co-workers who retired at 55.

People who eat candy live longer than those who don’t. (True/False)

Ans. True. A Harvard Study found that people who indulged in sweets a few times a month-including dark chocolate with heart-healthy polyphenols – lived about 11 months longer than abstainers.

Giving up meat and animal protein will increase your life span. (True/False)

Ans. False. Don’t ditch low-fat dairy or fish rich in Omega-3s: In a German Study comparing vegetarians, vegans (who eat no dairy or eggs) and moderate vegetarians (who eat fish), the moderates lived longest and vegans the shortest.
