4 Bad Habits That Will Age You By 12 Years!

Talking with a family friend last night on the phone, a funny topic came up, AGE!  We talked about how we used to do that when we were younger, and how we used to do that when we were in highschool and all that type of talk.  SO it made me think and worry about habits that could add more years od age to your life and this is what i cam across while surfin' the net!



From smoking to drinking, your vices can catch up with you in a bad way, actually aging you 12 years ahead of your time, according to a 20-year study of nearly 5,000 British adults by researchers at the University of Oslo in Norway, reports HealthDay News. The four bad habits are:
  1. Smoking tobacco
  2. Consuming more than three alcoholic drinks a day for men and two for women
  3. Getting less than two hours of physical activity a week
  4. Eating fruits and vegetables less than three times a day
Of the 5,000 people surveyed, 314 had all four unhealthy behaviors at the start of the study period. Among this group, 29 percent or 91 people died during the study. Compare this to the healthiest group of 387 people who had none of the four bad habits. But the good news is that you don't need to be extreme to be in the healthiest group. Although you can't smoke, you can still have two or three alcoholic drinks a day, exercise just 30 minutes a day four times a week and eat at least one fruit or vegetable at every meal. That's all it takes.
