Longevity is a topic of immortality in all walks of life. The longevity experience of centenarians is a "treasure" that everyone aspires to, but unfortunately, there is no absolute longevity formula. From a statistical point of view, we found a puzzling phenomenon: people who are sick live longer, while people who are not sick are prone to die early! Why is this? Let's discuss it together.
In fact, the truth is Yes: People who are ill know that they are not in good health, so they go to the hospital for minor illnesses. On the one hand, the illnesses are cured at the stage of minor illnesses, and they will not be delayed into serious illnesses. On the other hand, frequent visits to the hospital can also help prevent serious illnesses and discover physical problems in time. So, get sick oftenPeople tend to live longer.
People who are in good health usually don't care about any problems because they feel that they are in good health, so they don't go to the hospital and often drag minor illnesses into serious illnesses, so they tend to die early.
Therefore, if you want to live longer, self-protection and awareness of health preservation are very important. Let's take a look at some of the common habits of centenarians, and hope to enlighten and help you.
