Healthy Diet Helps Live Longer: Study

Research has confirmed that by eating healthier you can manage to live significantly longer than those who always snack on junk food and do not take care of themselves.

The study was published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association which compared the diets of a total of 2,500 people.

The study ultimately found that those who frequently enjoyed foods that were high in fat were nearly forty percent more like to die over the course of just ten years earlier than those who enjoyed eating healthier foods and did so on a regular basis.

Although this finding may not be surprising for some, it has confirmed that eating healthier can improve more than just the waistline or the outer appearance of the body.

Scientists have been studying the link between dietary habits and life expectancy for a long time now and this recent study is just one more piece of data which proves that the kind of food that we eat on a regular basis will ultimately determine how long we live and how well we do so.

Food for thought: those who frequently enjoy sweet foods on a regular basis are nearly thirty seven percent more likely to die than people who avoid sweets.
