Twenty entries in to our ‘101 ways to live to 100′ and already one or two trends are emerging. Alcohol and religion both turn up in quite a few of our centenarians’ secrets to longevity, as does chocolate. So far, no one has mentioned genetics (though a few have mentioned ‘family’).

Our league table below is surely the only time these words have ever appeared in a list together:
7/10: A good doctor; praising God
6/10: One meal a day; sleep; hard work
5/10: Chocolate; Monogamy; Guinness; Yoga; a lot of booze
4/10: Two raw eggs;
3/10: Work less overtime;
No score: Good food; stem cells
