Being active and living a healthy lifestyle into your seventies can make a huge difference to your life expectancy, according to a new study from Sweden.

Researchers at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute analysed the lifestyles of more than 1,800 Zoomers over 75.

The findings, on the British Medical Journal website, say men with the healthiest lifestyles lived six years longer… and women had five extra years.

Experts say it’s never too late to start looking after your health.

Being sedentary, overweight, a smoker or heavy drinker is bad for health and shortens life expectancy.

The researchers said they did not know how big the effect would be after 75, so they followed a group of people for 18 years.
