This Is What You Need To Do To Live To 100: DNA Study

  • Scientists may have found the key to living to 100 and beyond.
  • Only 0.27% of Americans were 100 or older in 2021, but the rate of people in the US becoming centenarians has nearly doubled in the last 20 years, according to data from the United Nations.
  • As more people reach this milestone, researchers at Boston University and Tufts Medical Center analyzed the DNA and lifestyles of seven centenarians to seek the fountain of youth.
