Blue Zones are where people live to 100 years old ten times at healthier rates and physiologies than is typical in the US. They reach their 90’s and 100’s without chronic degenerative diseases. We normally see huge chronic illnesses in aging Americans.
What an excellent article. I read The Blue Zones long time ago and was impressed by longevity , particularly in Sardinian men, who eat bread and goat cheese, but spent the day walking up and down the mountains whole tending to their goats, and are unburdened. Their wives take care of home and children. Many of them live very long lives.
