Where are the blue zones area of the world?

Blue zones are the places in the world discovered by Dan Buettner, who claims that these places consist of the longest-lived people in the world. He identified these five places as the blue zones.

Those five places which he has also discussed in his New York Times Bestseller book: The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest are:

  1. Sardinia, Italy (the barbagia region): First blue region ever identified and studied by them.
  2. The islands of Okinawa, Japan: Okinawa was once called the land of immortals. It’s situated at the southern end of Japan.
  3. Loma Linda, a small city in California: The people living here have the lifespan a decade longer than the rest of the world. They don’t smoke or drink alcohol.
  4. Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica: In “Nicoya Peninsula”, people live longer than those in other areas of Costa Rica.
  5. Ikaria, Greece: A mix of factors like geography, lifestyle, culture, diet, and outlook explains it all.

Locals of these places produce a high number of centenarians who suffer a small fragment of the common diseases that kill people in other parts of the world and enjoy more of a healthy life. Along with conscious and healthy lifestyle, they have a strong supporting community, whether it’s of friends, family or anyone is a way for them to be involved in regular social activities like enjoying meals together, cooking together, sharing hobbies together, working on things they’re passionate about with each other.
