Health Tips from the Over 90 Crowd

Sixty Minutes did an interesting show on what factors help to live to 90+

Here are some of their results

  • Exercise 45 minutes a day total – doesn’t have to be intense and can be a little bit at a time.
  • Activities – 1 hr with social activities increased longevity
  • Vitamins did not help.
  • Moderate alcohol is good – 2 drinks a day. Any kind of alcohol is good.
  • Coffee – 1 to 3 cups per day is good.
  • Maintain or gain weight. Being obese is not good though. It’s not good to be skinny when we’re old.
