Today, we’re going to talk about a key food that can add an additional five years to your lifespan. There was a study done for eleven years on 2,240 people over the age of 65. They found that having oily fish in your diet on a regular basis may increase your lifespan by almost five years. They found that omega-3 fatty acids in your red blood cells are a very good mortality risk predictor. On the flip side, it was found that being a regular smoker may decrease your lifespan by 4.7 years.
