Since genetics only account for 30% of one's ability to achieve longevity
(According to Rowe & Kahn, authors of "Successful Aging"),
the remainder is lifestyle (70%) which involves
our diet, the way we live, and our ability to avoid death by accidents or crime.
Thus, we actually have far more control over our longevity than many think.
Lifestyle is the biggest reason, not heredity, that people do not achieve longevity.
Many believe that heredity is responsible for their physical problems, when it is actually their
lifestyle habits that are "inherited." People tend to live and eat
the same as their relatives.
