Signs You're Going to Live Long

As we age, we start to think about growing old and dying. Some of us, particularly after the death of a contemporary, get busy updating wills thinking we're next. But did you know that we can live long - barring any serious accident or injury - and even reach 100? If you have these signs covered, prepare to meet and greet with your great grandchildren in the future:

You have a trim stomach after menopause. If you can still sport a bikini and get appreciative looks at your tummy after menopause, you have nothing to worry about. Studies show that women who measure 35 inches or more before and after menopause have increased risks of diabetes and heart problems.

You eat berries all the time. Berries are rich in antioxidants that repair damaged cells and fight free radicals. Eating berries ensures that you reduce your risk of dying from heart disease by 17% and boost your immune system as well.
