How to live longer: Four habits to reduce cancer and heart disease risk boosting longevity

Fitness & Health:

World leading longevity expert, Dr David Sinclair and author of Lifespan: Why We Age and Why We Don’t Have To, shared his tips on how one can boost their longevity. Dr Sinclair is an Australian biologist with a PHD from Harvard University and shares four of his daily habit secrets which pertain to longevity. His acclaimed scientific studies have proven age reversal is possible and by incorporating certain habits into your life you could turn back the ageing clock.

Avoid sugar and carbohydrates

Sugar and carbohydrate-rich diets have a negative impact on health independent of obesity.

Researchers discovered that the shortened survival of fruit flies fed a sugar and carbohydrate-rich diet were more prone to an early death.

Low carbohydrate dietary patterns favouring animal-derived protein and fat sources, from sources such as lamb, beef, pork, and chicken, were associated with higher mortality.


High sugar diets positively correlate with age-related diseases including diabetes and heart disease, so reducing sugar in the diet may delay ageing in humans by preventing metabolic diseases and improving general health.


Dr Sinclair advises on taking 1,000mg of Resveratrol which is an antioxidant found in red wine and certain foods.

Resveratrol has been touted as a natural way to help slow the ageing process whilst fighting cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

Dr Sinclair and colleagues discovered in 2003 that resveratrol could increase cell survival and slow aging in yeast (and later in mice) by activating a “longevity” gene known as SIRT1.

Other health benefits from resveratrol include protecting against high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and improved insulin sensitivity.
