It seems like everyone is on a quest to delay the effects of aging. New medical research is released with rapid frequency and revised protocols for treating medical conditions are emerging. New correlations between health and aging are constantly being uncovered. Leveraging the scientific evidence provides you with an opportunity to influence how you age.
"Only about 25% of your longevity is related to genetics. What you do and don’t do has a bigger impact, not only on how long you live, but on how long you live free from serious disease (health span). Those who achieve exceptional longevity, living to age 100+, often delay the onset of any disability until well into their nineties. The empiric evidence from observations of long-lived individuals suggests modifiable factors, such as activity level and having a positive life philosophy, influence both longevity and health span." - Robert J. Pignolo, M.D., Ph.D., Division Chair of the Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.
