Getting ready to live longer

Some researchers think we are on the virge of being able to vastly increase human lifespans. One obvious preparatory step is to keep intact whatever vitality each of us already has, so we can actually enjoy such an extension.

The Speculist today asked Dr. Terry Grossman what three things people might do to prepare. Here's the response:
1 Stop eating sugar
2 Get exercise
3 Reduce stress in your life
Speculist adds a fourth:
4 Don't smoke or drink heavily

These all seem excellent suggestions for best enjoying whatever time remains any of us.

Welcome! Feel free to disagree, but please try not to be disagreeable about it. Like my dad, I'm often wrong, but never in doubt.
