More than 1,600 people participated in the “90+ Study” research project aimed at identifying the factors of longevity. Every six months, starting in 2003, the volunteers underwent neurological and neuropsychological tests, as well as performing cognitive and physical tasks. The scientists also determined the subjects’ diet, physical activity, studied their medical history and the drugs taken.
The results showed that those who drank moderate amounts of alcohol and coffee were more likely to reach 90 years of age than those who did not drink them at all. In addition, over-70 overweight people had a lower risk of death than subjects with normal or underweight weight.
The researchers also found that over 40% of people over the age of 90 suffered from dementia and almost 80% were disabled. About half of the 90-year-olds have no cognitive impairment caused by diseases of the nervous system.
