    Why do so many past presidents live past 90 years of age?

    Is there something in White House water that we don't know about?

    Health is affected more by social and economic factors than by microbes or arterial plaque. Expresidents swim in bennies:
    1) On a social level they're as successful and fulfilled as it gets, they are given a deference and authority for the rest of their lives, and that is an alpha position that lengthens lifespan;
    2) they receive the world's best medical services, services paid for with other people's money, so when one has a hangnail it's taken care of at no difficulty to himself;
    3) counting all the benefits they get from pension to staffing to travel expenses, they have effective incomes that put them not in the politically infamous 1% but more in the 0.1%, so they don't have the economic pressures and restriction that erode the health of most of the elderly.
