Fact or Myth: Your DNA Is Your Destiny

While the DNA you inherited from your ancestors does play a role in how long you will live, scientists currently believe that your longevity largely hinges on 7 lifestyle choices. They are:
  • not smoking
  • not abusing alcohol and/or drugs
  • getting regular exercise
  • maintaining your weight 
  • having a stable marriage or relationship
  • having a good education and continuing to learn new things
  • developing successful coping mechanisms for dealing with life's problems
