"There are people genetically predisposed to cardiovascular disease and nepredraspolozhennye. If the parents of a person died before the age of 50 years, even following all these recommendations, to 100 years he would not live. But with good genetics tips help maintain heart health. With regard to the bad environment, the factors such as the present water pollution, air, no more than 10-15% of the impact on longevity - said the expert. - So from my point of view, the observance of these rules actually increase a person's life at least 20 years.
