Add 9 Years to Your Life with Simple Lifestyle Changes

Here are four simple, health-happy lifestyle changes that pay big on living longer, and living better longer. Researchers at Loma Linda University in California studied the lifestyles of more than 34,000 Seventh-Day Adventists - a religious group known for their longevity and healthy lifestyle. You don't need to convert religions to reap the longevity benefits of this study. Simply take on the lifestyle habits of this group.

Here is a synopsis of lifestyle changes and the associated years gained because of the lifestyle;
· Exercise vigorously three times per week; gain 2.1 years.
· Eat nuts five times a week; gain 2.9 years.
· Maintain a healthy weight; gain 1.5 years.
· Eat a vegetarian-style diet; gain 2.4 years.
