In Response To: Links between diet and longevity? (Claire)
Try some relevant keywords in the national database
for many health publications, PubMed. (link below)
Multiple factors affect longevity, as CM pointed out.
Actuarial questionaires look at city/country location,
family disease history, habits of smoking or drinking,
how many hours behind the wheel of a car, etc. all of which
are bone fide factors in affecting longevity as well.
As Dr. D'Adamo reports in ER4YT, different bloodtypes
have differing rates of survival for specific diseases,
like cholera, plague, tuberculosis. Any research directly on
your question would also have to look at what selection pressures
were at work... For example, were well fed O's exposed to cholera
at the same time as malnourished type A's, would the A's still
show their increased survival rate for cholera, as compared to O's
? That would take a lot of careful 'shoeleather' epidemiology to find out.
