The lifestyle choices found to be most influential on extending life expectancy are:

Physical activity (about 30 minutes daily), found to be the single greatest protector against death, lowering risk by37%

Refraining from smoking, cutting the risk by 35%

Following a diet high in fruit, vegetables, and fish, and low in red meat and dairy products (“Mediterranean diet”), reducing risk by 23%

Moderate alcohol consumption (about 4 glasses of wine or equivalent per week), lowering risk of death by 22%

Several researchers have found in their studies that when older persons adopted all four of these measures, their risk of dying was 65% lower over 10 years!
