“Where to live if you want a long life”

Blue Zones is a concept used to identify a geographic area of the world where people live measurably longer lives. The concept grew out of demographic work done by Gianni Pes and Michel Poulain who identified Sardinia’s Nuroro province as the region with the highest concentration of male centenarians.   As the two men zeroed in on the cluster of villages with the highest longevity, they drew concentric blue circles on the map and began referring to the area as the Blue Zone. Dan Buettner identified longevity hotspots in Okinawa (Japan); Sardinia (Italy); Nicoya (Costa Rica); Icaria (Greece); and among the Seventh-day Adventists in Loma Linda, California; and offered an explanation, as to why these populations live healthier and longer lives.  This is a fun yet scientific look at the differences in aging around the world.
