100-year-old doctor, still practicing, shares longevity secret: "Fall in love and get married"

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.
