Longevity: Journey into the blue zone | TechKnow



In this episode of TechKnow, we explore the regions where people enjoy a longer life of good health, regions known as Blue zones.

Acciaroli is one such region. It is part of what is known as the Cilento Coast of Italy, situated 140 km south of Naples. It has a high concentration of centenarians living there.

According to researchers from Rome’s Sapienza University and the University of California, San Diego, one in every 60 of its residents is at least 90 years old.

This Mediterranean region has become known for good health supplemented by diet rich in fresh produce, pasta, olive oil, and rosemary.

  • How about taking into account their overall quality of life? Are they stressed? The other thing to consider is strong community which provides a safety net, so to speak, they are not alienated like a large number of elderly individuals are in other countries. Also check the chemistry of the soil, this may give a clue- micronutrients.

  • Seit über 50 Jahren wird die die Insel von Militärs und Waffenherstellern benutzt um:

    neue Geschosse, Bomben und Drohnen zu testen,
    Soldaten und Piloten zu trainieren,
    Kriegsszenarien durchzuspielen,
    alte Waffen, Munition und gefährliche Chemikalien zu verbrennen, zu sprengen oder zu vergraben
    Bombereinsätze zu starten.

    60% aller italienischen Militärbasen befinden sich hier; die Basen des italienischen Militärs, der NATO und der Amerikaner beanspruchen ein Drittel der Land- und Seegebiete der Insel. Während militärischer Übungen auf See werden die gesperrten Seegebiete auf knapp 19.000 Quadratkilometer erweitert.

    Die Test- und Schießplätze in Quirra, Teulada und Capo Frasca

    Innerhalb der Schießbereiche sind die Verseuchungen, die Krebsfälle und Geburtsfehler am höchsten. In diesen großen Gebieten im südlichen Sardinien werden von den Waffenherstellern und den Militärs folgende Aktionen ausgeführt:

  • they have a good sense of community and the lifestyle there seems very laid back which reduces stress. All the 5 bluezones have something in common is staying active, eating vegetarian or nearly close to vegetarian and keeping active outside

MORINGA LEAFS! (This is the healthiest plant in the world with 98 nutrients and antioxidants in total, the next most healthiest plant in the world only has 28 nutrients) good thing i have 30 trees of moringa/malunggay in my garden😅

  • im a little confused. are the researchers saying that the younger generation in THIS community is more stressed? If so, maybe it's not the environment at all that contributes to this longevity but rather, the older generations' values…

  • Yet their life expectancy is virtually the same as Canada, having a few Centenarians seems meaningless………Basically a few outliers live to a long age which could easily be explained by the warmer climate alone.

  • I was a guest of an Italian colleague in his family home in Northern Italy, where the air is fresh, the water is fresh, everything is fresh! I sat on a sofa with his aged mother and was gobsmacked when she suddenly jumped over the back of the sofa and went off to the kitchen! Must be something in the natural lifestyle!

  • In Asia we believe that if you have Buddha's ears, you live longer. That means you have that long ear with big lobes. I hope people will study that and look at the percentage. They also need to look at the blood type of these people!

  • Don't be fooled, they eat plenty of animal foods too (along the lines of fish, meat, butter, lard, milk etc..) as is the case with all the other blue zones.

  • Breakfast at 12 AM and dinner at 5 PM… that's a 18-19 hours of no eating…. that's the key for longevity: leave a gap of at least 12 hours between feeding periods. Studies on rats showed impressive results on longevity and health resistance. Humans seem to follow the same rule.

  • Maybe no mass immigration in these areas also, and so less crime, less stress and not ashamed of their culture, when the country or city becomes full of immigrants form other cultures they change the areas, in London many old people have no choice to leave and they are surrounded by shops with words they don't understand, crime is high, burglaries, these place are safe and so the human being feels relaxed.
    In Sicily the people are afraid because of so many refugees that have come at night time women don't feel safe anymore, there is no blue zone here only black zone, this is VERY important, to feel safe and in your own culture, surrounded by thousands of years of stability.
    Having family values, and proximity to family, having your family nearby is healing, in the UK people hardly care for the elderly and family are too busy and leave them in a carehome.

  • It is so obvious to me why these people grow older. The fabric of their culture has not been ripped apart by modernism. They want to hold on as long as possible because it offers them the opportunity to see their great grandchildren grow old. It is obvious the family bonds are still intact and old people are revered elders.
