Wondering why some people tend to be healthier than others? Why do some live up to a hundred or more while others don’t?

 

Experts studied the differences between the genes of those who have aged healthily versus their counterparts. According to them, what made Wellderly (those ages 80 or more without chronic illnesses and do not take medications for such illnesses) different from the others are their genes affecting cognitive function. The Wellderly tend to have less or none of the harmful ApoE gene, which has a greater connection with Alzheimer’s.
