Living to 122

I read an amazing article today!

It was in reference to longevity.  The article was a study around what it took and what went into people living longer.

The findings were that it was 70% Environmental and 30% genetic.

That is very interesting.

The environmental piece is based on how you you eat.....exercise.....just what you do day in and day out...the other 30% comes down to genetics.....some people have genetics that will allow them an extra 10 years.

The 70% part is interesting in that if you watch what you eat and you are active on average the people they studied lived 8 to 9 more years.

That is a lot in my opinion!
