Subject: How to live to 100

Olaf Henry tells the story of a gentleman 107 years old who credits his
long life to eating a lot of wurst. This is a good reminder that medicine
and nutrition cannot still compete with good genes.

I have read that until 1900, a visit to the doctor did on average more harm
than good. Even now, as a recent post mentioned, there is little
correlation between health expenditures in a country or a state and life
expectancy. So medicine has still a long way to go!
