I just learned that Jack Lalanne Past away at 96 ,a juice and fiteness Guru.What beats me is my Father-in-law died at 96,and he ate everyday at Mcdonnels Hamberger joint.He died because he was hit by a car,he was one tough guy.The question i have is ,Did he live that long because of Genetics??

Great topic, Carlenz!

I think we've all known people who did all the 'wrong' things and yet lived a good long life, and vice versa. I look forward to reading the responses here.
