How to Live a Long Life with Poor Genes
by Jules Baum M.D.
After a short prologue that recounts my early life, education, and training, I review those hereditary and environmental factors that influence longevity. These include genes, stem cells, smoking, alcohol, diet, carcinogens, water, salt, exercise, and other ways to lengthen life, such as social relationships and pets. I also list those medicines I take and my laboratory values.
