Making home-cooked meals may help you live longer, according to a new study published in the journal Public Health Nutrition [HuffingtonPost.com].

Researchers followed a group of 1,888 men and women over the age of 65 for 10 years. In the initial survey, they found that 43 percent of participants never cooked, 17 percent cooked one to two times a week, nine percent cooked five times a week, and 31 percent cooked five or more times per week. After 10 years, 1,193 participants were still living. They found that the people who cooked more were more likely to survive.
