Study Finds That Four Lifestyle Changes Have Big Impact On Health

June 3, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Four lifestyle changes – regular exercise, eating a Mediterranean-style diet, maintaining a normal weight and, most importantly, not smoking – have the biggest impact on heart health, a U.S. study has found. Researchers analyzed data collected over 7.6 years on more than 6,200 men and women ages 44-84 who were white, African-American, Hispanic and Chinese. Those who adopted all four healthy behaviors had an 80 percent lower death rate over that time period compared to participants with none of the healthy behaviors, researchers said.
