but I wonder what the ratio of preventable ailments downs us in our golden years verses genetics.
Susceptibility to heart disease (a major killer) is preventable or at least modifiable by diet and excercise. Avoidance of habit-forming and addictive substances like alchohol and nicotine certainly helps.
Many forms of cancer are preventable by behavior, while others are not. Susceptibility seems to be hereditary but not exposure.
Where and how we live helps.
Even our perspectives.
