Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Is it really possible for anyone to live happily to age 100?
A: Yes! The good news is that your body was designed to be 100 – you just have to get out of the way. Getting out of the way means taking an honest look at the habits and lifestyle you are living with today. Most of us have developed habits that limit our true health potential. But don’t let these bad habits of the past discourage you – it is never too late to make new choices. What you did in the past can be changed, and your body will respond in kind. What matters is what you do from this moment forward.
