Longevity Tied to Eating and Sleeping

We all want to live a long, healthy and productive life; however, the majority of Americans knowingly engage in behaviors that do not promote a longer life. Most of the country is obese, sedentary, stressed, and eats poorly. A new study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition showed that men live longer with good sleep patterns, but women only live longer if they combine good sleep patterns with a diverse diet, especially a diet high in vitamin B6.


Both men and women had poor appetite, poor perceived health, and less physical activity when they slept poorly, but their outlook was improved when they began eating a varied diet. Lack of sleep has been correlated with increased morbidity and mortality. The message is clear – eat well, exercise and sleep adequately if you want to live a healthy and long life!
