Hello to all my fair and gentle readers and subscribers! Thought I would drop by and offer you a truly insightful video that chronicles one man's study into longevity.
Since one benefit of juicing for health means that us folks, with our enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrients, antioxidants,e.t.c... are at a statistical advantage when it comes to living long and healthy lives, I've become more and more interested in the study of longevity in general. In the video that follows you can find a truly mind bending study into just how longevity can be achieved.
So without more of my incessant rambling ;), let me introduce Dan Buettner. Dan has studied longevity from a very unique point of view for quite some time. He's a writer for National Geographic and has spent a great deal of time traveling the world, seeking out those populations who seem to defy time and live thriving into their 90's and beyond - to record breaking ages. Essentially he finds the oldest and healthiest people on earth and studies their nutrition habits, their communal habits, basically anything and everything that might give us clues as to how they do it.
He and his team study the world's "Blue Zones" Blue Zone being the phrase his team coined to describe communities whose elders live with vim and vigor to record-setting age. In this video (taken at TEDxTC), he shares the 9 common diet and lifestyle habits that keep age defying elders spry past age 100.
