Similarly, if we cut daily TV viewing down to two hours we could add on 1.4 years, they say in a report for the online journal BMJ Open.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School have found that a diet high in red meat can shorten life expectancy. The study of more than 120,000 people suggested red meat increased the risk of death from cancer and heart problems. Substituting red meat with fish, chicken or nuts lowered the risks, the authors said. According to The British Heart Foundation, red meat could still be eaten as part of a bal...
