As you might imagine, I've surveilled the situation. Take it as a single data point; my read is that longevity depends on the nutrition received during the fomentive years, ages 0 - 17 or so. Those from farms eating a good diet when young, are the ones I see in the bar at the large retirement community near me. I immediately recognize their health, from having read Price's book twice and really don't need to ask, but I do anyway. and the answer is always the same... "I grew up on a farm" Someplace on CZ recently I posted Price's seminal book. What started me on the health journey other than my own illness at the time, was having seen photos of American Revolutionary War veterans taken circa 1850, when they were all over 100 years old in the photos. I asked myself, how did these dudes live so long without "health care" ?? Then it hit me, the reason they lived so long is because they did not have any health care. They were raised on farms, and avoided doctors because there were no doctors around. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of good doctors out there. But these men, and there were many, lived to be what most of the ignorant ppl today would call "old" That in itself tells us all alot.
The way to longevity isn't whisky and cigars, although, those won't hurt you if you have healthy habits otherwise. The way to longevity is diet, and avoiding "health care" You are your own health care, if you have the guts and brains to act like..... an American. !! You have to be revolutionary if you want to be healthy is what I figure http://www.google.com/url?url=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2356524/Faces-American-revolution-Amazing-early-photographs-document-heroes-War-Independence-later-years.html&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&sa=U&ved=0ahUKEwiigbLWtIHbAhVHLKwKHfsiCl4QFggkMAc&usg=AOvVaw2s87mPkfV1WmMDdylXceu-
