Re: What are your expectations for longevity?

I believe you have a point, my elderly parents exercised with just their activities of daily living. They ate right all their life from their garden which sustained them. My dad had an 8th grade graduation but loved to read especially how to care for his bees. My mother loved to read as well especially her Bible. I am getting close to that 80 mark so I too hope JohnR41you are right that probably genetics has a factor in all of this. (I had a great uncle that went to 106.)
