Infographic Immortality

I am currently bemused by infographics. I wouldn't say obsessed, exactly, but I'm continually on the search for these pictorial guides that explain things in ways that words alone cannot. At their best, they are playful and colorful and entertaining. I also marvel at the necessary design skills, since I lack them entirely.

I also have long been fascinated by centenarians, and I love the anecdotal beliefs to which they attribute their longevity. An apple a day. Dessert only on Sunday. A glass of milk with dinner. So I was thrilled to find this infographic on living to 100. It references both chocolate and red wine (yay!) but also calorie restriction (boo).

What are your favorite infographics? Do you want to live to be 100?

The Buzz on Healthy Living Trends and Topics

About This Blog

Contrary to the title of this blog, I'm not always on a health kick. I try (for the most part) to eat well and exercise regularly, but I'm far, far from perfect. I do, though, enjoy learning about health trends and scientific discoveries, and I hope to share information and pose questions that you might find interesting or useful. Hey, if you get a little inspired while you're reading, all the better. Just don't expect it on a regular basis. I'm a writer, not a celebrity trainer.

Why health? Well, I've been around the block enough times that I don't take it for granted anymore. I also recognize that our health is the result of myriad factors ranging from genetics to diet to habits to socioeconomic status to prejudices and beyond. It's a complicated puzzle with different pieces for each of us. That means there are few guarantees or absolutes and still a ton to discover. I never liked the rigidity of science in practice, but I love the insights it produces.

So let's start 2013 on a Health Kick. With any luck, we'll all be better for it.
