All About Lifestyle

Because most health issues affecting the elderly surround noncommunicable diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease, adopting healthy habits early on is one of the best ways you can prepare for old age.

“Healthy lifestyles from the very beginning of life is key to a healthy and active old age,” said Dr. John Beard, director of WHO's Department of Aging and the Life-course.
