"How Longest-Living Among Us Do It"

In a CBS interview, Dan Buetther talks about his new book titled "Blue Zones". Dan discovered that there are communities of people worldwide that live an extra decade or more than the rest of us. They are located in:

  • Sardinia, Italy
  • Okinawa, Japan
  • Ikaria, Greece
  • Nicoya, Costa Rica
  • Loma Linda, California

Some of the key elements to their longer life are

  • Avoiding high-impact exercise in favor of low-impact, enjoyable physical activity
  • Surrounding yourself with the right kind of people
  • and avoiding meat and eating nuts
