Even though he recently turned 100, Dr. Engleman still sees arthritis patients regularly at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). He has some rather unconventional longevity secrets to share:
"I think exercise is mostly overrated. And the use of vitamins, forget it. And I don't encourage a lot of doctors.
Fall in love and get married. Sex is to be encouraged. Children are a priority."
His two sons are physicians. His daugher, a lawyer, is a married to a doctor, and their son is a physician.
