The "formula" to live to 100 years according to Harvard University

A shocking scientific study carried out at Harvard University has shown that there is a strong link between longevity and a balanced diet. After more than 30 years of research, they concluded that the risk of death in people who consume organic foods is 25% lower than in people who follow less sustainable diets.

The new formula to reach 100 years of life, necessarily assuming a consumption of organic foods, reduces by a quarter the probability of death from causes such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular, respiratory and neurodegenerative diseases.

The work was conducted by the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health and presented at Nutrition 2023, the annual meeting of the American Dietetic Association.

"I am always concerned about softening a person's influence on the environment. The diet project is not only healthy but also consistent on the planets of greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental parameters." Linh Bui, a candidate for Harvard to participate during his study.

Harvard Planetary Health Index

The research team created the Planetary Health Index by combining data on the impact of different foods on human health and nature.

It was developed based on the EAT-Lancet diet, taking into account the impact of food production methods on the environment.

This variable allowed the researchers to evaluate the study participants based on their diet.

"The results support our hypothesis that higher Index scores are associated with a lower risk of mortality," explains Bui.

Diets rich in fruits, non-starchy vegetables, whole grains, unsaturated oils and nuts and low in red meat, dairy, fish, eggs, cereals and processed foods are associated with a lower risk.

He died prematurely within three decades.

1986 people participated in the study carried out between 2018 and 100.000, of which 47.000 died.

After analyzing each participant's Planetary Health Index, the researchers found that those with higher scores had a lower risk of death.

Specifically, the risk of dying from respiratory complications is reduced by 50%, the risk of dying from neurodegenerative diseases is reduced by 50%, and the risk of dying from cancer or heart disease is 15% lower.

"We hope scientists can fine-tune this indicator with specific food cultures and confirm how it involves chronic and environmental impacts, such as trails.

Carbon, water supply and land use in other populations," summarized Linh Bui.

In 2019, research shows that the harm caused by Ulteracy products.

According to research carried out in Brazil and published in the American Journal of Medicine, nearly 57.000 Brazilians between 30 and 69 years old died this year due to diets based on this food. The researchers found that this amounts to more than 10% of the annual premature deaths in this age group nationwide.
