Dad abandoned all the healthy eating ideas and enjoyed himself. Of course Dad still died.... but it wasn't heart related.

I think it's only natural to want to live a "healthy lifestyle" (whatever that is). I think most people somewhat alter their lifestyles (or what they say about their lifestyle) to fit current, popular ideas.

If I live a long life.... I will credit lots of cycling miles... and salads for lunch. If I die before it's expected (I am already too old to die young) others will blame my genetics.
