The Simple Science of a Healthy Life
From Fitness to diets to emotional health and longevity, what do people who look and feel healthy do differently to those who are overtired, depressed, or out of shape? Every day we face an avalanche of studies and statistics that tell us what we should or shouldnt eat, how long we need to exercise for, or how we protect ourselves from second-hand smoke and the harmful rays of the sun. Not only are these studies often contradictory, but the actual scientific information is usually inaccessible.
Moving beyond the myths and misinformation, the advice in these pages is not based on one persons opinions or one experts study. For the first time the research available on the health of average people has been distilled into one hundred essential ways to become healthier and happier, and each findings is accompanied by a true story showing the results in action
EAT MORE OFTEN: Oxford University researchers found that people who ate five or six times a day had a 5% lower total cholesterol than average and were 45% more likely to be able to sustain their target weight than people who ate just once or twice a day.
WHO SAYS CAFFEINE IS BAD FOR YOU? The majority of scientific evidence shows that, for a healthy adult, moderate quantities of caffeine (about three cups of coffee a day) pose no significant health risk.
HOME SWEET HOME: People who describe their home lives as satisfying were 24% more likely to live beyond normal life expectancy, according to a UCLA study.
