Do you want to live to be 100? These exotic cuisines might help you live longer

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.

The twoimportant factors here are that whatever they eat most of it is produced locally and not processed much before it gets to the family kitchen.

Very interesting! Going back to basics help. What about the polluted air and water supply? And then, the prevalence of non-organic foods! At the end of the day, we are what we eat. We should be responsible for our health by making the right food and food supplement choices.

Doesn't matter much when your drinking and growing water is now heavily polluted and cancerous.

Sardinia and Loma Linda foods sound the best to me. It looks like the most common factors for longevity are beans and rice, not surprisingly. Great article. :)
