Cardiologist Recommends Seven Lifestyle Rules For A Longer, Healthier Life

October 24, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
By following seven simple lifestyle rules, people could significantly increase their chances of living to the age of 90 or even 100 without heart disease, stroke or chronic illnesses such as cancer. According to U.S. cardiologist Dr. Clyde Yancy, following the seven steps can “compress life-threatening disease into the final stages of life” while maintaining the quality of life. The seven lifestyle rules include: being more active, controlling cholesterol levels, eating a healthy diet, controlling blood pressure, achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, managing diabetes and staying tobacco free. Dr. Yancy said governments could promote these healthy lifestyle rules through changes in sodium policies, more tobacco control initiatives, increased green space, and health education.
