Getting old by eating well

1 September 2016    Editorial    health vital food blue zones

The #bluezones, those places where people live to 100+. What's their secret?

Blue Zones are areas of the world and periods in time where people live longer, healthier, and happier. It is not uncommon for someone to live to over a hundred years here. What is their secret?

Sardinia, Italy

The locals on Sardinia have done their own thing for centuries. They have resisted all manner of foreign influence and have preserved their age-old culture. Respecting your elders and being loyal to your family are the most important things for them.

Okinawa, Japan

This chain of islands off the coast of Japan is home to many of the world’s oldest people. Their secret to growing old in good health can be found in their environment and a culture rich in tradition.

Loma Linda, California

This town in San Bernardino County is home to many members of the Seventh-day Adventist community. Their belief prescribes a healthy lifestyle, which is why Loma Linda is the U.S. leader in life expectancy.

Check out more blue zones!
