Older, Longer, Healthier

A study of older men in The Netherlands indicated those who ate the equivalent of 1/3 of a chocolate bar every day had lower blood pressure and a reduced risk of death. The researchers also say, however, that it's too early to conclude it was chocolate that led to a healthier life. Among the many other statistical similarities in the lives of those men are that they:

Drink a cup of coffee a day.
Eat four-six eggs a week.
Watched at least three episodes of MASH and/or Cheers in their lifetime.
Prefer loafers to sneakers.
Would choose retractable wings of their own over flying in an airplane.
Stopped putting candles on their birthday cakes after fifty.
Hate commercial breaks.
Sleep with their eyes closed.
