It appears that longevity runs in some families just as the tendency to
suffer the diseases that shorten life runs in others. Do people who live
long have healthier versions of the genes which, in others, increase the
risk of vascular disease, cancer etc? Or is there evidence that people
that are still healthy in their 90's have a range of genes which equip
them to live longer?
Can anyone supply references of reviews on this?
