How would you like to add 10 years to your life in good health? How would you like to live a drug-free, disease-free long life? In 2010 National Geographic award winning author Dan Buettner released his book “The Blue Zones.” In their quest to discover the healthiest people on the planet, Dan and his team of scientists discovered 5 regions in the world where people lived a remarkably long life in good health. What they found was nothing less than astounding. These 5 cultures have more centenarians than anywhere else in the world. In fact, they have up to 10 x more people who live to 100+ years in good health. Imagine a 110-year young man who is able to water ski like a pro. How about a 104-year young woman who engages in yoga every-day and is able to do volunteer work for 8 different organizations each month.  Then there’s a 103-year young man who assists in over 20 open heart surgeries per month. In preparation for his eye-opening BLUE ZONE book, Dan Buettner and his team of scientists set out to discover the health secrets of these centenarians.

Why did I decide to give a lecture presentation on this topic? Well for starters, six years before National Geographic’s award-winning author Dan Buettner wrote his book on the “Blue Zones,” I wrote a book on the exact same topic. In my book “Carbs from Heaven, Carbs from Hell I wrote extensively about each one of the Blue Zones. Secondly, my wife and I just got back from a ten-day trip to one of the “BLUE ZONES” in Nicoya, Costa Rica and I’d like to share what we discovered about these remarkable centenarians. If you would like to get the “rest of the story,” come to my FREE lecture “The New Rules for Longevity…How to Reboot Your Body to the Blue Zone,” at the Brecksville Heinen’s on April 8, 2019 at 6:30.
