 SECRETS OF THE "BLUE ZONES"
 
 
 
Where in the world and why do people reach a high age in good health?
 
 
There are five areas found on earth where people do reach old age in good health:
 
Sardinia, Italy: a team of demographers found a spot of long living people in mountain villages where people often reach ages surprisingly close to the age of 100 years
 
The islands of Okinawa, Japan: Again, people living here reach on average ages among the highest on earth
 
Loma Linda, California: Researchers found here a group of seventh day Adventists who can be considered to reach an age at the top of America's oldest people: many 100 year olds, relatively few diseases and in general they have been in good health during there life
 
Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica: The peninsula was the subject of an inquiry held in 2007. Here too good health and old age.
 
Icaria, Greece: An expedition in April '09 to this island found a site with the highest percentage of 90 year olds anywhere in the world. Nearly 1 in 3 reaches that age. Furthermore, the existence of cancer is 20% less, 50% less heart disease and dementia does not exist at all here!
