Abstract:

Aging well used to mean "choosing your parents wisely." Not anymore. The results of a major nationwide study reveal that your lifestyle -- more than your genes -- determines your health as you get older, and that most "age-related" health problems are entirely preventable. That's great news -- if you take the right steps now to protect yourself from illness and pave the way to a long, enjoyable life. What's the trick to slowing the clock? It's the little things you do every day. For instance, simply taking a daily multivitamin can help boost your immune system, counter depression, and lower your risk of heart attack and stroke. And a mere 20 minutes of exercise a day can mean the difference between developing a chronic disease like diabetes or avoiding it. Researchers have also discovered that people with strong social ties live longer and get sick less often.
