Finnish doctors have worked out seven rules which, according to them, allows prolonging life by at least 10 years:

do not smoke (quitting tobacco reduces by 1/3 the risk of malignant tumors and by 1/4 the risk of death from heart attack);
stop drinking alcohol or drink it in moderate amounts;
keep your body weight in a normal range (the mortality rate among obese people is 1.5 times higher than among people of normal weight);
Stay physically active;
always eat breakfast;
Do not eat between meals;
sleep at least seven hours a night.
