Diet, exercise,happy: A healthy diet is essential for good health- the basis should be fruits & veggies. See http://tinyurl.com/ktampgg
A quality multivitamin is also wise.
Minimize exposure to environmental toxins.
Being happy is essential!
This often involves doing work you enjoy, helping others, having good relationships & a spiritual connection. Try reducing stress- meditation helps.
Also stay physically active.

Follow the following: Exercise most days of the week (aerobic work), eat fruits and vegetables liberally, limit saturated fats, increase fish and fish oil intake, have fiber with each meal, keep your weight in check, don't smoke at all or drink excessively (one or two drinks weekly). The lower the better on LDL and the higher the better on HDL.
