Richard Raines: Ageless beauty has to be genetic

Comments re article 43526: Gayle Harvey demands secret of being forever youthful

Richard Raines writes:
It would have to be genetics. Why else would we have people who are 70 plus running around with the energy of teenagers (and pretty much looking the part except for some gray hair) and people who age with not a gray hair to be found and they don't color it - while some of us at 50 look like a "humanized" version of a basset hound or some 20 somethings have salt and pepper hair? -Richard Raines
But maybe, also, Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) was right when she said, "Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art." -CM
