    The oldest living people on earth have a glass of wine daily, socialize, smoke a cigar or some such thing, take maybe asprin and a multivitamin and hug a lot. This provided they have a place to take a bath or shower. The only other thing they do is practice some form of spirituality, enjoy working outside daily and hug a lot. There are no drugs or pharmacuticals involved. Those living to their 90’s or 100’s must have a pretty intimate knowledge of God, because they don’t NEED drugs. All the pharmacuticals in the world, DONT CHANGE GOD”S POWER OR ABILITY. Have a glorious day! 🙂
