Question:Would you like to live to 100 (and beyond)

There's a new study conducted by Boston University that says it's possible-even for people with high blood pressure and diabetes to live to 100. Question is, do you want to?

Answer:

My grandfather lived to be 101. While his last couple of years were spent in an assisted living facility, his mind was sharp and he chose to enjoy every day as much as he could. While I know that living a long life comes with particular challenges, I'd like to be around as long as I can for my family and friends. Besides, think of all the cool stuff you'd see happen in the span of a century!
