What makes longevity run in families? Hint: Not good genes!

Common folklore has it that longevity is in your genes. We all know people who got old and whose parents and grandparents also lived to very ripe ages. There is certainly some truth to this notion, as scientists have shown that the Alzheimer-and Cardiovascular Disease associated APOE4 allele is mostly missing in very old long-lived people, and the protective APOE2 allele is more frequent. More than 10 SNPs have reproducibly been found associated with living longer.
