Longevity refers to the length of an individual’s life, particularly living to an old age. Genetic variants play a crucial role in longevity by influencing the body’s aging process and susceptibility to age-related diseases. Certain genes, have been associated with longer lifespans and a reduced risk of conditions such as heart disease, dementia, and cancer. While lifestyle and environment also impact longevity, genetics provide a foundation for an individual’s potential lifespan. Understanding these genetic factors can offer insights into health and longevity, guiding personalized healthcare strategies.
