But the practice also raises some valid concerns. "I think it can be part of an acute care adherence plan," Shital Mars, CEO of Progressive Care, told M...

That of course raises the question as to the degree to which inherited longevity is a cultural rather than genetic phenomenon. Only a tiny min...
