quote: I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age. (I am in my mid 50s.)A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, 'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?''Oh no,' I replied. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!'Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?'I said, 'Not much... my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!''Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?''No, I don't,' I said.He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?' 'No,' I said.He looked at me and said, 'Then, why do you want to live to be 80?'
