HOURS TO A LONGER LIFE PHOTOGRAPHS BY JAMES WORRELL

Reduce stress, help prevent
heart disease and cancer, even look
younger—in just one day!
The secret to living longer might be found in East Patchogue,
New York, where there’s a little 1966 Volvo that has clocked
more than 2. 9 million miles, a Guinness world record. How can
a car run for almost 50 years and still look as sharp as the day it
rolled off the lot? The answer is simple: proper maintenance. If
the tires wear out, they’re replaced. If the oil needs changing,
it’s changed. Not surprisingly, maintenance is also the secret to a
long and healthy life for humans. Think of your cells as antiaging
mechanics. If you treat them right, by eating well and exercising,
they will tune you up on a daily basis. If you don’t take care of
them, they will go on strike, and you will age faster. You’re in
the driver’s seat. You have the power to slow down the aging
process, and I have the plan. All you need is 24 hours!
