Eat more plants and fewer animals
Dr. Shin makes it easy: "Eat more plants, less animals, and try to avoid the processed stuff that would be part of a disaster preparedness kit, like instant noodles, SPAM, Cheez Whiz, etc. ... OK if you're in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, but then heart disease is probably the least of your worries." Though if everyone lives forever, isn't that something like the zombie apocalypse?
Don't become a party legend
Relieving stress and socializing are important aspects of a balanced, healthy life, but that doesn't mean you should reach for oblivion every weekend. "We recommend 6 to 8oz of alcohol per day," Dr. Shin says. "That doesn't mean you can 'save it up,' e.g., not drink all week and drink seven drinks Friday night. Anything more than that increases risk of high blood pressure."
Don't smoke, like you've been told since virtually birth
"Nothing controversial here. Smoking is bad," Dr. Shin says. "It will catch up with you in some form: heart disease, lung disease, or cancer." According to Dr. Shin, if a smoker were to have the opportunity to time-travel and change one thing about the past, she should never get hooked in the first place. Of course, that smoker could also just quit today, but I like Dr. Shin's futuristic vision.
