Re: What are your expectations for longevity?

Evidence-based studies indicate that longevity is based on two major factors, genetics and lifestyle choices.Twin studies have estimated that approximately 20-30% of an individualís lifespan is related to genetics, the rest is due to individual behaviors and environmental factors which can be modified.In addition, it found that lifestyle plays almost no factor in health and longevity after the age of 80, and that almost everything in advanced age is due to genetic factors.
