Absolutely fascinating! Here is the real skinny on how to live to 100 or longer. It’s not easy to live to 100 – we are not really genetically programmed to live that long – but we are programmed to live longer than we do. Dan Buettner tells about peoples with the highest percentage of centenarians–in Sardinia and Okinawa, for example, or the Seventh Day Adventists. What do they do different than most of us? Meet a granny holding her greatgreatgreatgrandchild and a 97-year-old doctor still doing open heart surgery.


The length of our days is seventy years–or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. — Psalm 90:10

“Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; he who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere youth; he who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed.” Yahweh, Isaiah 65:20
