Forbes features SeniorBridge's Dr. Eric Rackow's Comments on "How to Live to be 101"
Forbes.com - June 8, 2010
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are about 500,000 centenarians in the world, and almost 100,000 in the United States. And the population is rapidly growing. The agency projects by 2050 there will be 1.1 million centenarians in America alone. Meanwhile, researchers at Boston University predict there will be even more, estimating some 3 million baby boomers will live to be 100 or older.
"If you want to live to be 101, you have to live an active life both mentally and physically, and you do not want to be overweight," says Eric Rackow, M.D., professor of medicine at New York University and chief executive of at-home health care provider SeniorBridge.
