Yes, but isn’t this a finding about *centenarians*? Looks to me as if
we’ll have to wait 25-35 years before we see how this early experience
set you up for longevity, Paul. And may we all live long enough to check
on this natural experiment. 🙂
(Unless “early exposure” has nothing to do with it, and it’s a lifelong
process that’s involved.** Strikes me as unlikely, though.)
**EM radiation from vacuum tubes, say, back in the day. And from all the
electrical wiring in homes and office, but that would be a more
widespread effect and mask the proposed “radio effect”.
