Study Finds Not Smoking and Being Socially Engaged May Increase Lifespan

Researchers from the University of Otago have released a report that suggests that not smoking and being socially engaged may help people live longer free of common chronic diseases.

For their study, the researchers used data from the Residential Assessment Instrument–Home Care assessment that included 292 people over the age of 100 and 103,377 people with an average age of 81.7. Participants were assessed for depression, dementia, diabetes, hypertension, smoking, physical activity and social relationships.

Participants over the age of 100 were more likely to be female, non-smokers, and socially engaged outside of their home. Females in all age groups were more likely to be free of common chronic diseases compared to males.

In all participants, rates of depression and diabetes declined steadily with increasing age. Rates of hypertension increased by nearly 30% between the ages of 60 and 100.

The study was published online ahead on June 2, 2020 in the journal Aging Clinical and Experimental Research.
