For more than a decade, National Geographic explorer and longevity expert Dan Buettner has traveled the globe in search of the world’s longevity hot spots, communities he’s identified as “Blue Zones” (Ikaria, Greece; Okinawa, Japan; the Ogliastra region of Sardinia; Loma Linda, California; and Nicoya, Costa Rica). These are places with high concentrations of 100-year-olds who have grown old without preventable diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Buettner’s first book based on his research, “The Blue Zones,” was a New York Times best-seller and media sensation, sparking intense curiosity and conversation around the world about the secrets to living longer, healthier lives.
Since then, Buettner has committed himself to using his findings for a bigger purpose — to help Americans get healthy. In 2009, he launched the Blue Zones Project, the largest preventive health care project in the United States, which has improved the health of more than 5 million Americans. And THE BLUE ZONES SOLUTION: Eating and Living Like the World’s Healthiest People reveals how to transform your health using the smart eating and lifestyle practices of the world’s longest-lived people and shows how large-scale community changes — focused on improving the health environment rather than individual behavior change — can replicate Blue Zones in America.
