The Blue Zones

Twin Cities native and author (among other trades) Dan Buettner will be on Oprah today with Dr. Oz discussing the 9 secrets of the world’s longest-lived people/cultures.  These people reside in these “blue zones,” or certain locations around the globe where the residents outlive other populations by years.  He’ll discuss small things people can do in their everyday lives to add years to it (things like eating nuts, getting plenty of sunshine/vitamin D, high-antioxidant wines, etc.). The account of his expeditions which led to these findings can be found in the book, The Blue Zone: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest, by National Geographic Books.

I’m at work during Oprah,but KS95 this morning told me that it’d be on at 4PM on Channel 4 (WCCO).
