New Study Says, This Eating Habit Can Add Over 13 Years To Your Life–Could we Call This the Hezekiah Diet?


A new study on food and life expectancy may have you thinking twice before you bring home the bacon. According to the study from PLOS Medicine, changing your diet might add anywhere from 6 to 13 years to your life, depending on how drastic the changes are, and how old the person is when they make these shifts.

To draw these conclusions, researchers looked at the typical Western diet, which consists largely of red and processed meats, added sugar, sugar-sweetened drinks, and refined carbohydrates.

They then compared this typical diet to one called the “optimal” diet, which consisted of much less red meat and processed foods, and was significantly higher in whole grains, legumes, nuts, fish, fruits, and vegetables.

Researchers then found that if someone at the age of 20 years old made a switch from the typical Western diet to the “optimal” way of eating, they could expand their life expectancy from 10 to 13 years!
