Older and wiser

 

Sir, – At last, the centuries-old search for the secret to long life is over! The Irish Times provides the answer in eight simple steps (“Irish study finds eight novel ways to live longer (it’s not all diet and genes)”, January 15th).

You may have seen some of this invaluable advice over the years but never all of it printed on the one page. I am truly grateful.

Even though I have not followed any of this advice over the years, I am still alive.

Have I been doing something wrong? – Yours, etc,

EVA O’BRIEN,
