Here's how to live to 100

Who Wants to Live Forever sang Brian May and Freddie Mercury back in 1986.

Good grief, that's 29 years ago isn't it? Did you know that Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Power Of Love was Christmas number one 31 years ago? When did everything happen so long ago? When will we stop asking questions?

All of the above are surefire indicators that you are getting old. And, due to medical advances and the like, we are more likely to live to the grand old age of a hundred - and get that birthday telegram from the Queen - than ever before.

But it's still very much in your hands - don't expect to be able to eat three tons of crisps every day and still make it to three figures. And if you really want to know what you should and shouldn't be doing, take a look at this infographic, which details a host of findings from studies in Denmark for long-living, including drinking green tea, having lie-ins, and embracing technology.

Well, we would do, but everything moves so fast these days doesn't it? How does this bloody computer work again?
