“A Harvard University study that’s been running since the 1930s, tracking the lifelong health of both Harvard graduates and people born in inner-city Boston, shows that longevity hinges largely on seven lifestyle choices, which, if made by age fifty, serve as excellent predictors of well-being after age seventy. They are not smoking, not abusing alcohol, getting regular exercise, maintaining one’s weight, and having a stable marriage, an education, and good coping mechanisms for dealing with life’s troubles.”

“Although the Harvard study found that some factors outside of individual control, like the social class you are born into, have great bearing on how fit you are when you arrive at old age, interestingly, even these effects wear away after age seventy, at which point longevity is more heavily determined by health habits. Indeed, another recent study showed that after age seventy, a mere four factors — exercising, not smoking, consuming alcohol only moderately, and following a Mediterranean diet heavy on fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats like olive oil — reduce by a whopping 60 percent one’s chances of dying from any cause over a ten-year period.”
