Do you want to live to be 100? These exotic cuisines might help you live longer 10/13/2016 • Gia Bailey
What’s the differences between your diet and that of the population of the places where people live the longest?
It’s common knowledge that some regions of Earth have more centenarians than other parts of our beautiful planet. These areas are called Blue Zones, and people there live happier and longer than anywhere else.
Recent research shows that one of the main secrets of world's longest-living communities is their diet. As it turns out, eating habits of the centenarians are simple but very effective. Western researchers and physicians use Blue Zones diets to treat a wide variety of chronic diseases, and such dietary change often brings rich rewards.
Well, let's find out more about the Blue Zones key to longevity together.
