Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a well-rounded diet is crucial to prolonging your lifespan.
You could also boost your lifespan by doing regular exercise. It’s the “miracle cure” we’ve all been waiting for, according to the NHS.
Making some small diet or lifestyle changes could help to increase your life expectancy and avoid an early death.
One of the easiest ways to improve your overall health is to adopt the Mediterranean diet.
“A Johns Hopkins-led study of 6,200 men and women over eight years found that those who adopted four smart behaviours reduced the chance of death from all causes within that time frame by an astounding 80 percent,” said the univeristy.
“The healthiest people in the study maintained a body mass index [BMI] — a ratio of height to weight that measures body mass — of less than 25.
“The study found that the healthiest people followed a Mediterranean-style diet.
“That means a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, tree nuts with healthy oils, fish [and less red meats], whole-grain carbs and olive oil for cooking.”
Meanwhile, you could also lower your risk of early death by regularly eating ginger, it’s been revealed.
Ginger has been claimed to reduce inflammation in the colon, which has been linked with bowel cancer.
Dried spices provide the highest concentration of antioxidants, whereas freezing them preserves the antioxidants in fresh spices.
Everyone should liberally add a variety of spices to their meals, nutritionists have urged.
