Tips to live longer
Thanks to Oprah and other nice people on TV we’re all very aware of what it takes to live a healthy life.
We need to take vitamins, make exercise and drink water.
What I’m writing about is not random advices, is science.
There are several habits that will help us live longer.
It doesn’t seem possible that being poor would make you live longer.
After all, while life is more important than money, you need money to buy the things that keep you alive.
In turbulent economic times, you would expect the life expectancy of the population to lower as unemployment increases and nobody can afford to pay for doctors and vitamins.
Also, instead of eating expensive fresh fruit and vegetables, we subsist on the warm bowl of ramen noodles.
But statistics shows that economic hardship increases life expectancy.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the death rate in the U.S. declined and life expectancy rose during the whole financial collapse from 2007 to 2010.
The reason is that poor people can’t afford to go out so they don’t use cars as much as we do so they have fewer traffic fatalities.
For poor people, fun activities like drugs, cigarettes and liquor are luxuries so they rarely do them.
Plus, staying home means forming stronger bonds with family, which is universally known to be good for your health.
At the end of the day they have better habits than rich people.
They don’t have jobs which is good for stress levels so fewer poor people suffer heart attacks.
You know the person who never shows up in a bad mood and always remembers your birthday with cupcakes and hugs.
According to another study from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, people who approach life with an overly optimistic, cheerful attitude, die young.
The study found that optimistic extroverted people are way less cautious than grumps.
Happy people take more risks and are less aware of consequences.
They’re the ones who dance in the rain and get struck by lightning.
Do you hear that, free spirits?
You’re going to die young.
This is another one that seems impossible.
We all know of at least one famous person who drank himself to death.
If that would make you think that drinking alcohol is bad for your health you are wrong.
People who totally abstain from alcohol have a higher mortality rate than those who enjoy it.
A study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reveals that people who had one to three drinks a day are two times more likely to live longer than those who drink water or soda.
You wonder why?
The MIT also explains that the results are because nondrinkers have fewer social ties and less family support than the funny drinkers.
People who don’t drink tend to be more boring and have fewer friends which are factors that affect longevity.
And that my friends, is why I’m going to live forever.
the world must know the truth!
