Task description & scene summary

Task description:
Listen to the audio and use the information you hear to answer the multiple choice questions.
Scene summary:
The good news for anyone born after the year 2000 is that studies in Denmark have shown that they will probably live to be 100. But that doesn’t mean that the rest of us are doomed to an early grave. A clinical professor at Stanford University says “What’s holding us back are bad habits.” So the secret to longevity is as much to do with what we don’t do as what we do. Sure, there’s a strong element of luck and genetics at play in the longevity game, but these are things we can’t control.

So let’s concentrate on the things we can control, In this episode of the Infographics Show, How to live to 100.
