Some dads have a special knack for offering just the right words of wisdom. And so for our Father's Day healthy gift giveaway, we asked readers to Tweet us with the best health lessons they learned from their fathers.

From the positive role models (one walking dad lived to 91) to the negative examples (a reader Tweeted that she decided not to smoke after watching her father do exactly that) to the downright funny advice that only a dad can deliver (does eating bread crust really put hair on your chest?), here are 50 of our favorite responses.

What's the best health lesson you learned from your dad?
