in powered hang gliding either,and perhaps that's the secret to a long life, or abstaining from chewing tobacco, or riding horses on Tuesday. How could she (or anyone) possibly know?

It must be true because it was reported in the Sun

Never too late to start, however a wise man once said,"Girls under 16 are protected by law and Girls over 65 are protected by nature"

I remember reading somewhere that Roman Catholic Nuns live on average longer than other women. This was thought to be due to the connection between a mans sperm causing cancer.

On the other hand it was said that Roman Catholic Priests lived shorter lives than other man. This was attributed to the fact that sexual intercourse causes the mans heard to beat very fast and so was a good form of exercise that the Priests never had.

Rather than the lack of sex I would perhaps take it as less stress.

No other half to keep happy, no children... and of course no financial demands that a family entails.
