what do you think is the secret why some people reach the age 100+? Have anyone asked them yet?

This answer may surprise you - clean water! The major reason for long life in "developed" countries is a clean and sanitary water supply as well as a developed sewer system. Many public health experts believe that the addition of chlorine to water supplies, about a century ago (in the USA), have saved far more people than advances in antibiotics, surgery and other more modern advances. Quite a way down the list is food. Most countries have the food, but distribution is the issue.

It didn't surprise me at all, in fact I completely agree with you because what you said is true.
