business news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters reports on a new study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that says if people maintain a healthy lifestyle – not smoking, exercising regularly, eating healthfully, drinking alcohol in moderation and maintaining an ideal weight – they are 80 percent less likely to suffer a stroke, in addition to being less likely to suffer from cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

The odds are apparently even better for women than for men if they maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Coming next week, a multi-million dollar study funded by our tax dollars that will reveal that if you smoke, eat and drink too much, never exercise and let yourself go, the odds will improve that you are going to die sooner rather than later.
