The proverbial “fountain of youth”, may not exist, but lifestyle changes can do the same thing, a new study by Cambridge University shows.

Some would give millions, or whatever they had, to buy an extra 14 years of life, but according to the latest research, it’s just four relatively simple behaviors that combine to add well over a decade to your life expectancy.

The research, headed by Dr. Kay-Tee Khaw at Cambridge’s Institute of Public Health, found that those who 1) exercised regularly, 2) ate five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, 3) didn’t smoke, and 4) did not drink excessively, will on average live 14 years longer than those who do not follow these behaviors.
