VISIT THE SAME GP FOR A LONGER LIFE

If you want to slash your risk of premature death, find a good GP and stick with them. A study from the University of Exeter in the UK has revealed that when people consistently visit the same doctor, their mortality risk significantly decreases. It all comes down to improved communication – the more you get to know your doctor, the more comfortable you feel with them, which means you’re more likely to take their advice and less likely to end up needing hospital care.
