Living to 100: Personality & Good Genes May Be Key

Researchers haveِ foundِ that personality traits likeِ beingِ outgoing, optimistic, easygoing, andِ  enjoying laughter asِ well asِ staying engaged inِ activities mayِ beِ anِ important part ofِ the longevity genes mix.
When I started working withِ centenarians, I thought we’dِ find thatِ they survived soِ long inِ part becauseِ they wereِ meanِ andِ ornery, study researcher Nir Barzilai, ofِ the Albert Einstein College ofِ Medicine, saidِ inِ a statement.
In addition, someِ members ofِ the population areِ extremely long-lived, soِ it’sِ easy toِ compare theirِ genes toِ theِ genetics ofِ members ofِ the population whoِ don’tِ fall intoِ that category.
