Interesting book living to 100
Just finished reading a fun book on living to 100 most of it was more or less general knowledge such as men's waist line, diet, have a purpose in life, no stress, eat a healthy breakfast, physical activity. One thing got me by surprise that i was not aware, people that have many friends and a larger circle of friends tend to outlive people by at least 10 years that have a just a few friends, and also married men tend to die before men that have never been married by 7 years in average. Another interesting point, those with more than 12 years of education -- more than a high school diploma -- can expect to live to 85; for those with 12 or fewer years of education, life expectancy is 76.
Why do women live longer than men? is brought up and they talk about the chromosomes how women have two X's, and men X anY, and how aging and damage, they have a choice in terms of genes — either on one X chromosome or the other.
It also emphasizes throughout the book how staying thin increases dramatically your life expectancy.
