Half of supercentenarians have no children - isn't that a very strong indicator as well then?
It's a bit shocking to me too, since I thought having children and family gives you a better chance of having a strong social network later in life, which in turn should increase longevity and health?
Interesting link - thanks!
Also the link to killing off non-dividing cells as a trick to live longer is really food for thought if it pans out. Wikipedia is kind of sceptic regarding Quercetin though. Hurry up science, I am not going to live forever!
