Seems to me the biggest risks come from my DNA.  Sure, I could do what Subby suggests, but altering my DNA seems a much more effective option.

/ And safer, I imagine

Could also move to Australia and die by poisonous monstrosities before heart disease has its chance.

I'm too hung over to work the Google box, but I saw a thing on Centenarians a few years back. What places had the most and how they lived, etc.

No surprise, Okinawa, Sardinia, Greek Is., etc.

They all had certain things in common. Lots of exercise(walking), almost no red meat, fish, and surprisingly lots of pork. Not American bacon, but lean pork.

So, if you want to live to be really, really old. Get off your ass, put down the burger and eat a pork loin once in a while.

Ow! That was my feelings!: So, if you want to live to be really, really old. Get off your ass, put down the burger and eat a pork loin once in a while.


Or as it's known in America, "Two Strikes and Living to an Old Age is OUUUTTTTA HEAAAAAHHH...."

Yeah this. I even quit eating Kosher about 10 years ago, and starting eating a fair amount of lean pork roasts.

/still need to walk more

They probably also had a lot of genetics in common too.

I'm thinking that eating whole fresh foods, rather than fast food and/or processed food plays a role as well.

No it was clearly the pirhana.

Wow, who would have guessed that having to spend hours being active, working hard to hunt for your food, would lead to a healthy lipid profile?

The facts of life... to make an alteration in the evolvement of an organic life system is fatal. A coding sequence cannot be revised once it's been established.

It's low-impact, really good on the joints.

FTA: By calorie count, about 14 percent of the Tsimane diet is protein, 14 percent is fat and 72 percent is carbohydrate. (By contrast, the typical U.S. adult diets has more fat - about 16 percent protein, 33 percent fat and 51 percent carbohydrate, according to Centers for Disease Control statistics.)

What is their total calorie count compared to a Western diet?
