Dr. Duke Johnson, author of the book The Optimal Health Revolution, says obviously we can't go back in time but there are some things we can do…
Including eating five to seven servings of fruits and vegetables. Five to seven servings of fruits and vegetables every day have so many benefits that they reduce the risk of cancer, they reduce the risk of heart disease, they reduce the risk of diabetes, and in people who are obese have a tendency to lose weight.
Another fascinating factor in staying healthy and living longer is religious faith.
There are over 1400 studies that have shown that people who have a committed religious faith have better health - it's an area of study at Duke University. Also The National Institute of Health and Harvard are doing research on this.
Specifically what the research shows is that…
People who have what is called an "intrinsic faith" (meaning that they are committed to their faith) have lower rates of heart disease, better recovery from heart disease, lower cancer rates, better recovery, lower drug abuse rates, lower recovery, etc. Science can't tell you what to believe but whatever you do believe, believe it intently.
