In brief: No
Everyone ages at their own rate.
Genetics play the most important part but taking good care of yourself such as maintaining a healthy weight, exercise, avoiding tobacco, moderate alcohol intake and seeing your doctor to manage any chronic health conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol go a long way to extend a healthy lifespan.
