Reduced Dementia And Heart Disease Are Key Benefits Of Healthy Behaviors

December 9, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Welsh researchers who studied 35 years of health data from 2,235 men aged 45-59 in South Wales found that those who consistently followed at least four of five healthy behaviors – regular exercise, non-smoking, low body weight, healthy diet and low alcohol intake – were much healthier than those who didn’t. Data showed that men who consistently followed four of five of the healthy behaviors were 60 percent less likely to suffer from dementia and cognitive decline, and 70 percent less likely to experience diabetes, heart disease and stroke than those who followed none of the behaviors.
