I have family members who died in their 100s...
My grandfather is 95 years old. He smoked since he was 15 years old until he was 90... (Smokers, don't get any ideas from that. He was just probably lucky. Put down the cigarette at a certain age please).
My granduncle is in his late 90s
My grandaunt is in her early 90s
My grandmother died when she was 94
My other grandaunt died when she was 97
I had a great grandmother who died when she was 102.
I have no idea if it is just Caribbean genes or something else... I think we will live longer than that if we die of natural causes. Studies show we are living longer now.0
