The story says : long time ago in a crowded market , there was a man pulling an old aged man badly and shouting on him . A man passed these 2 and felt sad for the whole scene he interrupted saying : be kind to your old father , remember he was kind with you , when you was a kid . The man turned saying : Oh my father , that's my grandson .
The man opened his mouth saying : I have heard of Iben Rabyah but I haven't heard of u . The other man said : I am him who u have heard of
       I don't know was is true or not . I have found this story in an ancient Arabic book , mentioning that Ibn Rabyah lived for 300 years .
For me this was unbelievable , but wasn't until recently when I discovered the documented story of this Chinese monk , Li Ching Yuen who have reached his 256 birth day .
    His long life was attributed to his life style and ways of nutrition .
A Green heart man / woman is a sentence used in my culture to describe those people who live long and healthy and have the love for life .
Can enjoy their days like kids do . I have noticed some of them . Most of them are with strong souls , humorous , smart and active .
My grandmother lived up to her 105 birthday , she didn't suffer from diabetes or high blood pressure , she was clever and a strong woman
She died in winter she got a bad cough and wasn't able to breath
I remember she was picky on the types of food she used to eat , and like a strong tree she died standing . She didn't go through a lot of hospitalizing in her last days .

Shookrun ya Rosemary! It is always better to be kind to old people. Who knows? You might reach this age and the others could do the same thing to you. My great grandmother reached  the age of one hundred and nine. We used to respect her. Thanks, Rosemary.

If it is for spreading kindness and valuable things to learn then I would be fine to have a long life. :)

Based on developing era, it's all about "back to nature". Habits with technology, people hardly ignore consuming junk food/ processed food. It's our choice, though no one ever know when we die. 

Thank you for sharing, dear Rosemary.

   U are right  Mishaikh  according  to our religious  beliefs  Allah  is the one who can grant us a long or a short life  . Thank u for sharing  ur  point of view   :)

I don't think they have to have a boring long life, because these people are surrounded by their very large family of their own, so there is a lot more to enjoy their so many grand children.

I must say Rosemary, there are signs of Allah all around us just to have a mind to think.  He has taken life and death in His own hand, whom he wishes gives long life, or otherwise, because He is Allah.
