Your genetics loads the gun, but your lifestyle pulls the trigger..
You may think that your genes determine your longevity, but the truth is genetics account for a maximum of 30% of your life expectancy. The rest comes from your lifestyle, behaviors, attitudes, environment, and a little bit of luck.
This defines your epigenome. It determines the quality of your healthspan. It is the software that runs on the hardware, which is your genome. Quality of lifespan is healthspan.
To sustain longevity, you have to evolve..
Fill up your plate with vegetables.
Get enough sleep.
Manage your stress.
