Bad Habits Can Age You 12 Years

Smoking, drinking too much, lack of exercise and poor diet can age you by 12 years.

The findings come from a study that tracked close to 5,000 British adults for 20 years. Over the course of the study, 29 percent of the people with all four unhealthy behaviors died. Only 8 percent died among the people with none of the four habits.

USA Today notes that:

“The findings don't mean that everyone who maintains a healthy lifestyle will live longer than those who don't, but it will increase the odds.”
