Back by popular demand! FREE SEMINAR: By improving their lifestyle, people can look and feel better at every age and add 12 years to their life expectancy. Something called the Danish Twin Studies established that less than 25% of how long the average person lives is dictated by genes. In other words, most of how long and how well you live is up to you.Map and Directions to the Brentwood Library
So how can you live longer? Does it involve diets? Supplements? Exercise programs? Should you be eating organic, free range chicken or tofu? And what about physical activity? Should you be running marathons or doing yoga?
During this lecture, Mrs. Bruey will present the findings of a project sponsored by National Geographic who hired the world’s best longevity researchers to identify pockets around the world where people lived measurably better. They identified five areas in the world that they called “Blue Zones”, where they found that people reach age 100 at rates 10 times greater than in the United States. They found the extra 10 years that we’re missing.
