Four habits to extend life for 14 years

According to a study of 20,000 men and women by Kay-Tee Khaw and colleagues at the University of Cambridge, four habits can increase lifespan by 14 years:
  • not smoking
  • exercising regularly
  • eating five servings of fruit and vegetables a day
  • drinking alcohol moderately (drinking between one to fourteen units of alcohol a week. 14 units are around nine 125 ml glasses of wine, or seven pints of 3-4% beer. )

I guess I need to exercise more... eat more fruit and vegetables... and drink more alcohol.... hahahahaha.... :D
