About a third of longevity is due to hereditary factors, while the remainder is dependent on lifestyle and living habits. A study focusing on 34.192 people in the United States showed that a combination of factors including diet, exercise, smoking, weight, and hormone therapy can change life expectancy by as long as 10 years.

Building a healthy body when one is young sets a good foundation for later on in life. A malnourished fetus may grow up to be at increased risk for diseases like diabetes during old age. Being overweight or obese as a young person raises the risks of chronic illnesses like cancer as an adult. Studies have shown that, so long as the body has been properly maintained and taken care of throughout life, humans can live to be at least 120 years old.

It is estimated that there are approximately 300-450 super-centenarians individuals who are 110 years old or older in the world. One such super centenarian was Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura, who lived for 116 years and 54 days. France’s Jeanne Louise Calment (1875-1997) lived for 122 years and 164 days.
