How to Live Longer
What can I do today to live longer? Anybody working in the field of aging research often hears this question. Here is a simple list of steps that anyone can take that most theorists agree are helpful in having a longer and healthier life:
Eat less -- Research on animals has indicated that life span has typically increased by as much as 50 percent when caloric intake is restricted. Dietary restriction should be medically supervised.
Exercise more -- Exercise improves general health and longevity but should be medically supervised.
Follow the advice of your doctor -- Avoid self-destructive behaviors; detect and treat health problems.
Lobby your elected representative to increase spending on medical research in general and aging research in particular. We spend more on bubble gum than on aging research. You are about 50,000 times more likely to die of an age-related disease than from enemy attack (based on the last ten years experience in developed countries).
