I remember a boy I used to know. He was the son of an AF dentist and lived in Germany. I jokingly asked him how many fillings he had and he said none. He ended up letting everyone in our group see all his perfect white molars. I have often wondered if he ever got even one filling.

That has to be due to more than diet, doesn’t it?

Probably but my childhood dentists were a father and son who never mentioned diet. Father lived into his 90's and was long and lean as he marched in a local parade every year. Son died in his 60's.

The son didn’t get his dad’s genes.

Possibly. Also, dad struggled to go to school and start a practice. Son had no strugles. Born with a silver dpoon in his mouth and a job at graduation.

Does that affect lifespan?

I am sure that it may have affected the son's. Born in 1929, he may have grown up with "the good life" of red meat and fried foods.

He may have grown up with an unhealthy lifestyle.

I think in those days it was called affluent.
