      Researchers from The 90+ Study have published many scientific papers in premier journals. Some of the major findings are:

      People who drank moderate amounts of alcohol or coffee lived longer than those who abstained.
      People who were overweight in their 70s lived longer than normal or underweight people did.
      Over 40% of people aged 90 and older suffer from dementia while almost 80% are disabled. Both are more common in women than men.
      About half of people with dementia over age 90 do not have sufficient neuropathology in their brain to explain their cognitive loss.
      People aged 90 and older with an APOE2 gene are less likely to have clinical Alzheimer’s dementia, but are much more likely to have Alzheimer’s neuropathology in their brains.

      Makes you feel a little better about food and drink, eh?

      I envision a combo as I age more would be to continue to have beer and some wine, legalize cannabis and do tai chi.

      Oh, and swear a lot.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
