I think I might have some good genes..
Hell yes, you have good genes!

As a retired medic I can tell you this: people who make it past 85 y. o. do it because of their superior genes. And no one makes it to 90+ y.o. by eating right and exercising. It's all because of one's genes.

I've had patients who do ALL the right things to stay healthy yet they're still a medical train wreck. I've also had patients who were alcoholic transients/homeless and blowing a .445 BA yet they look their age!

There are two things that dictate our longevity:
1) Lifestyle

2) genetic make up

One that you can control and one that you can't.

Taking a look at your blood-relatives will give you a good idea of what genes you probably have. 96bronco is an EXCELLENT example of someone who swims in a superior gene pool . I'm probably right behind him because, despite being heavy smokers, all my grandparents died in their late 80s. We're talking genuine chain-smokers too!
