i saw a show about that area of greece and they said it was only partly due to their diet, which consisted mostly of locally grown veggies and raw goat's milk.

equaly or possibly more importantly, they conveyed the fact that most people walk everywhere instead of driving, and have very simple lives with little stress.

Interesting question, Andy (it seems it got lost in the scuffle). And if these foods add 10 years to our lives at the end who wants that?
Too bad the years can't be added on in the beginning when everyone wants to rock us, read us bedtime stories, and feed us milk and cookies.

And, buckytom, that makes perfect sense. Meanwhile, pack your bags and join kathleenA and I in the BlueZone of Greece! And don't forget your sunglasses because you'll be spending lots of time on those white sand beaches and cliffside cafe's while Ariana, a healthy "greek goddess", serves you a Greek wine called "Nectar of the God" (i'm not making up that wine ) and plenty of tasty Greek greens in olive oil.

As far as I know, there is only one cure for aging ... hmmm. If you aren't getting older, then, well, you're ..... 6 feet under. Eating healthy makes you feel better, but next year you are still another year older!

What's with all of this laying in the hot sun eating Greek foods stuff? I'd much rather be enjoying the pristine waters of anywhere with pristine waters, swimming, scuba, water skiing, etc. Then when the paytime is over, it's time for the great, healthy, and delicious food, the back rubs, sitting cozy by the fire with that someone special (DW), and enjoying some hot cocoa, with a bit of cinamon and cayenne pepper. I odn't know if Greece has blueberries or not. We'll just have to import the little wonder berries from Michigan's Upper Peninsula and have blueberry rich deserts to complete our meals.

And the fish has to be cooked either over, or beside a smokey fire, and served as perfectly cooked fillets with a bit of sea salt. I'm thinking fresh tuna or salmon would be great.

Now who's bringing the music, and it better not be that Margaritaville song.

Greece has pristine waters and it's sunny and warm there. In addition to the fish cooked over open fires, there's souvlaki, shish kebab, dolmades, spanakopita and ouzo!

I'm up for all of that except the ouzo and lying around on the beach. I never could handle just lying in the sun. I've got to be doing something.

Sleeping and dreaming about all those other things I listed. That's doing something.
