Diet plays important role in health and longevity

By 2050, the nation’s elderly population will more than double to 88 million, according to the US Census Bureau, and the more frail, over-age 85 population will quadruple to 19 million. Currently, Florida ranks first in the United States in the population percentage of full-time and seasonal residents over the age of 65.

As the population continues to age, and as many of us advance into retirement, consuming a healthier diet can go a long way toward helping us to live a longer and healthier life.

Some of these foods (along with little evidence-based complementary advice) can assist us in that effort. Thanks to WebMD for much of the content, which focuses on factors of potential support for a longer, healthier life.
