In 2010, researchers from the British Medical Research Council found that those with the strongest grip usually lived longer than those with weak grip, and the risk of death of those with the weakest grip was 67% higher than those with the strongest grip during the follow-up survey.
Feature 2: large vital capacity, the longer people live!
Vital capacity can predict life span, which is the conclusion of scientists at Boston University School of medicine after 30 years of research. Research shows that a person's vital capacity is closely related to the functional capacity and metabolic capacity of various systems of the body.
In short, human organs, systems, tissues and cells consume oxygen all the time. The body can work normally only when the oxygen supply is sufficient. The oxygen supply in our body is all obtained by the gas exchange of the lungs. A large vital capacity means that the amount of gas exchange in the lungs is large every time we breathe.
Feature 3: the body is slightly fat, the longer people live!
Now people are 'thin for beauty', but in fact, people who are slightly fat live a long life!
The study found that in the old age, the obese people had higher bone density and lower death rate, and the incidence of respiratory diseases, osteoporosis and diabetes were also lower, and their adaptability to the environment was stronger. For example, when the disease such as influenza and pneumonia occurred, the elderly with weight loss were more susceptible to infection, while the elderly with obesity were relatively better.

When researchers counted the life expectancy of 3088 scientists, artists, writers and thinkers since the Qin and Han Dynasties, they found that their average life expectancy was 65 years old. You should know that the average life expectancy of the population before liberation was only 36 years old!
Foreign data also show that the average life expectancy of 400 outstanding scientists in Europe and America after the 16th century is 64 years, while the average life expectancy of scientists who use the brain most frequently is 74 years, including Edison 84 years, Galileo 78 years, Newton 85 years, Darwin 73 years, Einstein 76 years, Franklin 84 years and Michelin 80 years. This is 20-30 years higher than the average life expectancy of the population at that time.
Feature 5: outgoing personality, the longer people live!

The study also found that these cheerful longevity people are not only better socially, but also more relaxed, which makes them better at coping with stress.
Feature 6: if you don't snore, the longer you live!

The male is no more than 90cm and the female surname is no more than 85CM.
Feature 8: light taste, the longer people live!

Feature 9: the later menopause, the longer people live!
For women, menopause is longer! A new study from the University of California, San Diego, has confirmed that women who come late in menopause are more likely to live longer.
The results show that the probability of living to the age of 90 will increase for women with menopausal age of more than 50 years and childbearing age of more than 40 years. In addition, women with late menopause are more likely to have overall health in subsequent life.
