A new study reveals that it is never too late to make lifestyle changes that dramatically reduce your risk of cancer. It contradicts the common myth that it's too late to make changes if you are in your 50's or 60's. In contrast, the study revealed that out of 29,000 women between the ages of 55 to 69 whose lifestyle habits were tracked, those who followed healthy recommendations such as eating fruits and vegetables and avoiding tobacco use were remarkably healthier 12 years later.

The study revealed that 22% of the cancers that did occur could have been avoided if all the women in the study group had followed all of the health recommendations. It also revealed that 31% of the cancers would have been avoided if people had stopped smoking tobacco and that 100% of the cancers would have been avoided if they had died at an earlier age, which just goes to show you that if you can't prevent disease, taking antidepressant is always a good defense because it increases your risk of committing suicide, meaning you won't get the disease in question because you're already dead. Interestingly, only a third of the women in the study met the guidelines to eat at least five servings of vegetables and fruits daily.

This is a fascinating study, but what if they had reversed it and took a look at whether people who are healthy in their 50's and 60's can change their lifestyle and become couch potatoes in 12 years or less?

May be that study would be titled, "It's never too late to throw away your health by eating junk foods and adopting a sedentary lifestyle." Wait a minute. Come to think of it, that study is already in progress and virtually all Americans are participating in it.

And by the way, who actually followed these 29,000 elderly women for 12 years? It sounds like somebody has been handing out the Viagra at the Seniors Center. And by the way, how hard can it actually be to eat five servings of fruits a day anyway? Isn't the serving size for fruit about as big as a couple of blueberries? You ever buy some sort of packaged food product and think, gee, this is about enough for one meal and you look on the package and it says it contains 12 servings! Who's making up these serving sizes anyway? And why does a stick of butter have 47 servings?

But hey, the bottom line here is that it is never to old to get healthy, even if you are in your 60's.
