Drinking This May Help You Live Longer

In a recent study, coffee was shown to positively affect longevity.

Drinking coffee may decrease your risk of early death according to new research. A large study out of Britain took blood samples and surveyed lifestyle information from over half a million volunteers. The researchers found that over a 10-year span, those who drank coffee were more likely to stay alive. 

The results pointed out that the amount of coffee and kind of coffee that was consumed was irrelevant. The potential reasons behind these findings could be because coffee, among other beneficial things, is filled with antioxidants that are helpful in the body and has been proven to reduce inflammation.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
