Jeevam Sharade Shatam, meaning there by: Let us live a long and happy life for 100 years.India has been the hub of the Saints/Rishi/Muni's who have been practicing Yog and other methods for surviving a long period of time. Here are some tried and trusted means for Longevity.
Life span in Sat/Kret Yug; 400 years, Treta: 300 years, Dwaper: 200 Years, Kal Yug: 100 years.
There is a long list of people with life span of 100 to millions of years like Pralad, Bahu Bali, Markanday, Lomash, Hanuman, Sugreev, Vibhishan, Ved Vyas, Krapacharya, Kapil, Ashawasthama.
Longevity depends on the quantum of air inhaled or exhaled i.e., no of breaths per minute.More you breathe respire, less years you survive.
Even though, life span is predestined, yet blessings, prayers, devotion to God can enhance it,  though in rarest of rare cases. Mysterious are the ways of God. Miracles are always possible.
A healthy mind lives in a healthy body.

Early marriage is harmful for the body as it checks physical growth/development of mind and hinders in studies.
Avoid too much of travel, extreme-rough terrains, desert, mountainous / sloppy regions, trenches, marshy lands.
Enchantment, recitation of Mratunjay/Maha Mratunjay Mantra with devotion and concentration on the right notes–cords, purity at heart are found to cure incurable diseases and boost life; after bathing-facing East in the morning and North in the evening. After lunch rest a while, after dinner walk a mile.
Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise.

गरुड़ पुराण :- इन 5 कामों से कम होती है उम्र
Garuda Puran- In 5 kam se kam hoti hai umar (1). रात में दही खाना :- रात में दही खाने से भी मनुष्यों की आयु कम होती है। वैसे तो दही खाना शरीर के लिए फायदेमंद होता है, लेकिन रात के समय दही का सेवन करने से कई प्रकार के रोग होने की संभावना बढ़ जाती है जैसे- पेट के रोग आदि। आयुर्वेद में भी रात को दही खाने की मनानी है क्योंकि रात को भोजन करने के बाद हम अधिक मेहनत नहीं करते और कुछ देर बाद सो जाते हैं, जिसके कारण भोजन ठीक से पच नहीं पाता। पेट में दही के ठीक से न पच पाने के अनेक साइट इफेक्ट होते हैं, जिसके कारण शरीर में अनेक प्रकार के रोग हो सकते हैं। इसलिए रात के समय दही का सेवन नहीं करना चाहिए।
(2). शुष्क मांस का सेवन :- शुष्क यानी सूखे हुए मांस का सेवन करने से भी मनुष्यों की आयु कम होती है। सूखे मांस से यहां तात्पर्य है बासी या कुछ दिन पुराना मांस। जब मांस कुछ दिन पुराना हो जाता है तो वह सूख जाता है और उस पर कई प्रकार के खतरनाक बैक्टीरिया व वायरसों का संक्रमण हो जाता है। जब कोई व्यक्ति यह मांस खाता है तो मांस के साथ बैक्टीरिया तथा वायरस भी उसके पेट में चले जाते हैं और कई प्रकार के रोग उत्पन्न करते हैं। ये रोग मनुष्य की आयु कम करते हैं।
(3). सुबह देर तक सोना :- सुबह देर तक सोने से भी मनुष्यों की आयु कम होती है। आयुर्वेद की दृष्टि से देखा जाए तो पूरे दिन की अपेक्षा सुबह ब्रह्म मुहूर्त में शुद्ध वायु अधिक होती है। ब्रह्म मुहूर्त की वायु का सेवन करने से शरीर के अनेक रोग स्वत: ही ठीक हो जाते हैं और श्वसन तंत्र भी स्वस्थ रहता है। जब आप देर तक सोते हैं तो ब्रह्म मुहूर्त की शुद्ध वायु का सेवन नहीं कर पाते और अनेक प्रकार के रोग आपको घेर लेते हैं। इसलिए सुबह देर तक सोने से मनुष्यों की आयु कम होती है।
(4). श्मशान के धुएं का सेवन :- श्मशान में शवों का दाह संस्कार किया जाता है। शरीर के मृत होते ही उस पर अनेक प्रकार के बैक्टीरिया व वायरसों का संक्रमण हो जाता है। ऐसे न जाने कितने शवों को प्रतिदिन श्मशान लाकर जलाया जाता है। जब इन शवों का दाह संस्कार किया जाता है, तब कुछ बैक्टीरिया-वायरस तो शव के साथ ही नष्ट हो जाते हैं और कुछ वायुमंडल में धुएं के साथ फैल जाते हैं। जब कोई व्यक्ति उस धुएं के संपर्क में आता है तो ये बैक्टीरिया-वायरस उसके शरीर से चिपक जाते हैं और विभिन्न प्रकार के रोग फैलाते हैं। इन रोगों से मनुष्य की आयु कम हो सकती है।

(5).  सुबह व अत्यधिक मैथुन करना :- सुबह के समय मैथुन करने तथा अत्यधिक मैथुन करने से भी मनुष्यों की आयु कम होती है। हमारे महापुरुषों ने सुबह का समय योग, प्राणायाम आदि के लिए निश्चित किया है। इस समय यदि कोई मनुष्य मैथुन (स्त्री से शारीरिक संबंध) करता है तो इससे उसका शरीर कमजोर होता है। अत्यधिक मैथुन के कारण शरीर लगातार कमजोर होता जाता है और एक समय ऐसा भी आता है जब शरीर में रोगों से लडऩे की ताकत ही समाप्त हो जाती है। उस स्थिति में अनेक घातक रोग शरीर को अंदर तक खोखला कर देते हैं। इसलिए सुबह के समय व अत्यधिक मैथुन नहीं करना चाहिए, इससे मनुष्यों की आयु कम होती है।
Rig Ved prohibits sacrifice of animals-birds-humans.[ऋगवेद 5/51/12] It asks the ruler to extradite-expel the meat eaters from the kingdom.[ऋगवेद 8/101/15]
Atharv Ved desires the protection of animals.[अथर्ववेद 19/48/5]. It asks for the punishment to the violent.[अथर्ववेद 8/3/16]
Yjur Ved forbade killing of any organism and teaches non violence. [यजुर्वेद 12/32, 16/3]
Bhagwan Ram was a pure vegetarian.[सुंदर कांड स्कन्द 36 श्लोक 41]

The task cleansing of the toxins stored in the body is performed by the liver. It can be spruced up.

He gets paid for every bit of job/duty performed. Don't expect him to do anything for free, to anyone. He has no inclination for charity, since he joined this profession to earn more money-more and more money.
You go to him for advice and he advises you to get numerous tests done, which prove to be useless more often. The aim is to extract as much as possible from the pocket of the patient. The cost of these tests comes out to be more than his advice-prescription. Later it comes out that he has prescribed banned drugs. He passes on the samples to patients, through the drug store/pharmacist, who sell stolen drugs from government hospitals along with expired ones. Duplicate drugs worth millions of rupees are found but the sellers are found to be immune from the clutches of law enforcing agencies.

There are numeral instances when, the doctors have been found to steal the internal organs of the patients for transplant. Nothing seems to desists-detract them from such heinous crimes/acts.
