No known substance can extend life, but the chances of staying healthy and living a long time can be improved:


  1. Eat a balanced diet, including five helpings of fruits and vegetables a day
  2. Exercise regularly (check with a doctor before starting an exercise program).
  3. Get regular health check-ups.
  4. Don't smoke (it's never too late to quit).
  5. Practice safety habits at home to prevent falls and fractures. Always wear your seatbelt in a car.
  6. Stay in contact with family and friends. Stay active through work, play, and community.
  7. Avoid overexposure to the sun and the cold.
  8. Do not drink. While drinking may have a few benefits, its harm far exceeds its benefit.
  9. Keep personal and financial records in order to simplify budgeting and investing. Plan long-term housing and money needs.
  10. Keep a positive attitude toward life. Do things that make you happy.
