Blue Zone Health describes the characteristic lifestyles and environments of the world’s longest-lived people. The term first appeared in a Nov. 2005 National Geographic magazine story by Dan Buettner, “The Secrets of a Long Life.” He identified five geographic areas where people live statistically longest: Okinawa (Japan), Sardinia (Italy), Nicoya (Costa Rica), Icaria (Greece), and among Seventh-day Adventists in Loma Linda, CA.

1) Communities focused on healthy living, and
2) Communities with an average age over 50.
It is NOT designed for younger, family, or millennial communities.
