A centenarian reveals the keys to longevity
As a new year begins, many of us have made vows to stay healthy and fit. If that’s one of your resolutions, you may want to consider some advice from someone who has a lot of wisdom in that department, and not just because he’s a doctor. Martina Castro spoke with centenarian rheumatologist Ephraim Engleman, on how to live fast and keep going.
MARTINA CASTRO: Everyone in my office wanted me to ask you, what the secrets were.
DR. EPHRAIM ENGLEMAN: I sort of anticipated this question, here are some suggestions: choose the right spouse; encourage sex – with your spouse that is; enjoy your work, whatever it is; exercise only if you must – don't fall, now that is the important one, don't fall!
