How Diet Affects Healthy Aging

(Andrew Weil, M.D.) Eating well in your 50s and 60s can set the stage for healthy aging… Assessing the diet questionnaires and the women’s health at age 70 or older, the researchers found that only 1,171 (11 percent) qualified as healthy agers.
The team found that these women’s diets were closest to the Mediterranean-style diet. The “healthy agers” were also less likely to be obese or smoke than the other women in the study. They also exercised more in midlife and fewer of them had diagnosis of high blood pressure or high cholesterol compared to the women who were not deemed healthy agers.
