This just in, from the "duh" files

A new study from the Centers for Disease Control says that people who adopt four healthy behaviors -- never smoking, regular exercise, eating well and maintaining a healthy weight -- can dramatically reduce their likelihood for chronic disease and an early death, a new study confirms.

Really? I never would have guessed that.

On average, healthy living may cut your odds for heart disease, cancer and diabetes by about 80 percent, the researchers said.

What really bothers me about studies like this is the amount of time and effort and money they waste, money that could be better spent, on say, curing a disease or two.
