CDC: Four Healthy Behaviors May Prolong Lifespan.

HealthDay (8/19, Preidt) reports that four healthy behaviors may confer longer life according to a study in the American Journal of Public Health. CDC researchers analyzed long-term data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III Mortality study and found that individuals who refrained from smoking, ate a “healthy diet,” participated regularly in “physical activity,” and avoided “excessive alcohol use — were 63 percent less likely to die early from any cause than those with none of those healthy habits.”
