In brief: Lifestyle or Luck

In this case, your lifestyle may be more important than your family inheritance.
Things to think about: getting 8-10 glasses of water a day? Lots of fruits & veggies? Fiber [think brown instead of white grains, oatmeal]. Any medications? Any supplements like iron or calcium? Good luck with your plumbing.
