More Gray Hair Linked to Higher Risk of Heart Disease

In a new observational study, scientists say they’ve found a link between graying hair and coronary heart disease, Medical News Today reports. Gray hair and heart disease share many of the same mechanisms that come with aging, researchers found.

This is an intriguing factoid, but even more interesting is that, while you can’t control whether your hair goes gray or not, there are many things you can control to slow the aging process. Sitting too much, for example, can slice as many as eight years off your life. That’s why I live by the motto of sit less and move more. (If you have an office job, you can accomplish this with a standing desk.)

Another step toward adding years to your life is to make sure to get regular exercise beyond just plain movement. Inspirational stories I’ve reported on show that whether you’ve never exercised before or have simply fallen off track, it’s never too late to renew your commitment to physical activity. Even if you’re well into your senior years, you still have time to begin.

You can also add years to your life by avoiding processed foods and eating only organic whole, fresh fruits and vegetables, along with grass fed meats and dairy products.

Antioxidants such as resveratrol, a compound found in grape skins (muscadines are full of resveratrol!) red wine, raspberries, pomegranates, raw cacao and dark chocolate, also have a reputation for being life-extenders. One of the most dramatic advantages that resveratrol provides is its power to annihilate free radicals, produced by your body as a part of normal metabolism.
