100 Candles - PAU Andalucía 2015

>Exámenes selectividad inglés resueltos Andalucía


100 candles grandmaReceiving a birthday telegram from the Queen is a special event, but it is becoming more common all the time. Today, around 10,000 people in the UK are centenarians, or people aged one hundred years or older. A future monarch will be very busy penning birthday congratulations because the prediction is that by 2050, there will be a quarter of a million centenarians.
We know there are certain places in the world where many people already live to one hundred and beyond. They retain good health into very old age with lower rates of heart disease, cancer and dementia. Some famous examples include Okinawa and Sicily.
Why does this happen, and how can we increase our chances of a long and healthy life? Dr Lynne Corner, a researcher in ageing at Newcastle University has informed about the latest clues that scientists have found.
First of all, it may help to have the right genes. But the potential to live a long life is a complicated mix of genes and other factors that keep us healthier. We can't control our inherited traits, but we can all still benefit from adopting some of the habits and lifestyles for a healthy older age. For example, it helps to follow the so-called Mediterranean diet, which is high in fruit and vegetables. It is low in fat and salt and includes only modest amounts of meat. In the places mentioned above, everyone also stays active, even in very old age. They walk, dance and tend gardens, with daily exercise outdoors in the fresh air. And it also helps to live in very sociable communities, where families and friendship are an important part of everyday life.

    1. Los exámenes publicados hasta la fecha con etiqueta de 2016, son evidentemente modelos que las universidades ofrecen cada año para tenerlos como referencia ;)
      Son útiles porque en muchos casos la estructura del examen cambia de un año para otro.
      Así que ya sabes, a practicar y ¡mucha suerte!
