Bad habits can age you


Bad habits could age you by more than a decade.

Researchers in Britain followed a group of people for 20 years.

They looked at four risk factors -- including smoking,

drinking two alcoholic beverages a day,

exercising less than two hours a week, and

not eating enough fruits and veggies.

30-percent of participants with all four risk factors died during the study--compared to just eight-percent of the healthiest participants.

People were an average 44-years old at the beginning of the study.
