What food helps us have a long life??

There is no single food which can prolong our lives. Instead, good combinations of any and in right proportions make that for us. Insoluble fiber absorbs fats then excreted by our body keep us from absorbing to many fats so we can indulge on burgers and the like but don't please have enough veggies and fruits as these are the source of fiber. As for the proportion, it should be less burger and more on veggies and fruits otherwise what's the use? Note that burger, veggies and fruits are examples only. There are a lot of other food which can keep our diet well proportioned. Sometimes delicious can kill and yucky can save(eg. bitter melon/amargoso and sugar, especially refined sugar).

Food is important for life and if one takes healthy food then one might conceivably live to be a hundred. I want to live to be at least a hundred as long as I am still healthy and not bed-ridden. Otherwise, I would probably want to go quickly. Cheers!!

Hi there, well I'm not sure that food alone can help prolong life, but if you combine food and exercise, you have a much better chance. Good healthy foods include fresh fruits and vegetables (for essential vitamins) and foods that are high in fibre. You should also have a sensible balance of protein, carbohydrates and 'good' fats
