Lifestyle doesn't matter. If you want to live a long healthy life, you only need to have the genes of the Ashkenazi Jews. There. Problem solved.
This work, published this week in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society involved 477 Ashkenazi Jews aged 95 to 122 who were living independently. Three-quarters were women.
Ashkenazi Jews? Um, Why?
This group was chosen because they are more ''genetically uniform than other populations, making it easier to spot gene differences".
What Did The Study Do, Actually?
They looked at the Ashkenazi group versus a control group who had the same lifestyle habits:
- height-weight ratio
- exercise level
- and diet
