Deciding on whether you and your family will dine out or eat at home? A new research gives you good reasons to have a homecooked meal up to five times a week which could add years to your life.
Based on the result, subjects who cooked at home about five times a week were 47 percent more probable to still be alive after 10 years.
Lead author Professor Mark Wahlqvist in a statement, "It has become clear that cooking is a healthy behavior." Wahlqvist said, "It deserves a place in life-long education, public health policy, urban planning, and household economics."
The team who did the research was Taiwanese and Australian, they did the study for 10 years, which includes 1,888 men and women over age 65 that had lived in Taiwan.
At the beginning of the study, they talked to each participant about several lifestyle factors, including cooking habits, shopping habits, diet, education, transportation, and smoking.
As cited by Mark Hyman, physician and New York Times best-selling author, for The Huffington Post, it illustrates that those kids who have regular meals with their parents do well in school and have healthier relationships.
Also, study finds that they are 42 percent less likely to drink, 50 percent less likely to smoke, and 66 percent less like to smoke marijuana.
Hyman advised to avoid putting high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated fats or sugar or fat as the first or second ingredient on the label in your fridge. Rather fill up it with real fresh, whole, local foods when possible.
