A person's level of education is the best predictor of lifespan, a new study reports. 13% of those with a high school education or less died before the age of 60. Only 5% of people with a college-level education died before the age of 60.
Daily time-restricted feeding and limiting yourself to one moderate-sized meal two days a week may have significant benefits for both cognitive and overall health. A new study links intermittent fasting to a longer, healthier life.
A meta-analysis of nine longitudinal studies reveals urban green spaces are significantly associated with a reduction in premature mortality. A 4% reduction in premature mortality was linked to each increment of 0.1 in vegetation score within 500 meters of residential buildings.
Owning a dog was associated with a 33% lower risk of death for heart attack survivors who lived alone, and a 27% reduced risk for those who suffered a stroke, compared to those who did not own a pet.

Flies lacking Ets21c died much faster when exposed to oxidative stress. Findings reveal a new molecular switch that could be responsible for a longer life and stress resilience.
A link has been identified between oxidative stress, which has previously been linked to aging and neurodegeneration, and sleep. Oxidative stress activates neurons that control sleep function. The findings could help in the development of treatments for sleep disorders.
