Eat Wise, Live Well, “Sardinian Longevity DNA and Assets” An Annual Culinary Well-Being Conference
In the early 2000s, demographer and physician Dr. Giovanni Pes found remarkably low mortality rates and high life expectancies among several villages in central Sardinia. He marked each settlement onto a map, eventually creating a cluster of blue marks.
He labeled the region a blue zone, a term now used to refer to any area with extraordinarily long-living populations. Five have been identified, including Nicoya, Costa Rica, and Ikaria, Greece.
To find out why this is the case, Pes initially analyzed the population's gene pool. He had subscribed to the idea that geographical isolation may have resulted in genetic variants that favor longevity to be kept among locals.
Find out secrets from the Sardinians themselves, at our upcoming Culinary Well-being Conference.
