If you want to live longer, you may want to head to your kitchen instead of your favorite restaurant.

A new study found a connection between cooking at home and longevity.

Researchers tracked men and women in Taiwan for more than 10 years. They found that people who cooked at home several times a week lived longer.

Other things that increased longevity were shopping and not smoking.
