    It's probably all the smoked pork, my Serb grandad who died at 75 ate smoked pork, salami, sausages everyday, died due to a heart attack such a shame.

    I'm guessing they eat more fish there? That's the secret to long life tbh.

    All four of my grandparents have live into their 80s. My paternal grandfather died at 87 due to diabetes complications. He had a wound in his foot that didn’t hheal and became gangrenous. They wanted to remove his leg but he was so old the chances of it working and not killing him in the process were very small.

    Although, 2 of them had pretty severe diabetes, the other had diabetes that she kept under control. One of my grandfathers was a lifelong smoker and recently had his bladder removed (cancer) as a result, but otherwise he is healthy.

    I feel lucky to have 3 grandparents still living in my 20s.
