Key To Longevity May Be Linked To Mom's Age At Birth!

This is an interesting look at data and drawing some conclusions. I think it is worth reading but take it with a grain of salt!!!People are more likely to see their 100th birthday, research hints, if they were born to young mothers.

The age at which a mother gives birth has a major impact on how long her child will live, two researchers from the University of Chicago's Center on Aging told the Chicago Actuarial Association meeting this spring.

The chances of living to the ripe old age of 100 — and beyond — nearly double for a child born to a woman before her 25th birthday, Drs. Leonid Gavrilov and Natalia Gavrilova reported. The father's age is less important to longevity, according to their research.

I thought perhaps you may find it interesting to take a look at the original published peer-reviewed study:
