Adventist Lifestyle, a Fountain of Youth According to National Geographic Researcher

Source: Adventist News Network

New York Times best-selling author and researcher, Dan Buettner has found 5 pockets around the world where people live longer, healthier, and happier lives than the surrounding population. He calls these pockets, the Blue Zones, and has authored a National Geographic book, called "The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who've Lived the Longest" (National Geographic Books, 2008).

According to Buettner, Loma Linda, California is America's Blue Zone. The researcher found that the Adventist lifestyle in the southern California Adventist community is shown to increase longevity. He cited habits common among Adventists, such as the Sabbath rest and a plant-based diet.

Also finding a connection between healthier lives and God, Buettner states: "I can tell you that of the 200 plus centenarians I interviewed [for the book], 99 percent believed in God, so faith seems to factor fairly prominently."

Would you look at that! Turns out that our parents have been right when they've taught us about God, and made us to eat our veggies!
