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.
