New research says that you can live to 100 even with chronic illness. I saw this on the blog, Daily Health Net – posted by David. This is the research quoted:
“For the study, Boston University researchers did phone interviews and health assessments of more than 500 women and 200 men who had reached 100. They found that roughly two-thirds of them had avoided significant age-related ailments.
But the rest, dubbed “survivors,” had developed an age-related disease before reaching 85, including high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes. Yet many functioned remarkably well — nearly as well as their disease-free peers.”
Frankly, I don’t want to live to 100, do you? That said, do you think that most of these people worked longer than the population that didn’t survive as long? Or does work contribute to an early demise?
