■Class discussion: How much does our lifestyle affect how long we are likely to live? How long do you expect to live? What are you doing or not doing that could affect your life expectancy? What about the habits of other members of your family or your friends? How do life expectancy rates in the U.S. compare to the rest of the world? Other than lifestyle, what factors impact a person's life expectancy?
