    The biggest factor imo is genes. But that doesn't mean we can't do what is necessary to mitigate those. I work out, watch my diet, and practice meditation all in harmony to keep my blood pressure down.

    Genetics, lifestyle, fate...not necessarily in that order.

    I don't think I'm especially healthy, but I look marvelous.

    And it doesn't really matter if you feel like hell just so long as you look marvelous while you're suffering.

    I selected exercise even though selecting healthy long living parents is probably key. Never been sick in my life, several physical injuries, football, cycling, fighting, take vitamins frequently, road a bike to work over 20 years, have done marathons and cycled over 200 miles in a day, told I look 10 to 20 years younger and now grandpa. I think I also handle stress well and can manage complex stressful situations. How's that for bragging. lol. Look at Jack Lalanne he is amazing for his age.

    I said exercise. I could eat Tacobell all week and as long as I run for 30+ min a day I'll feel like a champ. I'll crap like a pig though, lol.

    No one in my family has ever needed one.
