I saw a documentary about what they call the Blue zone and it talks about a certain areas how people tend to live longer. It comes down to certain healthy things they eat and keeping their core strong, also being able to do deep knee bends into old age. It makes a lot of sense.

Genetics is probubly the most important, but I think how you handle stress is just as important. Good diet and exercise help Where you live also seems important, but that may relate to stress.
