Episode 41: Add the #1 Longevity Food with Dan Buettner

Dan Buettner discovered the five places in the world –dubbed blue zones hotspots – where people live the longest, healthiest lives. In this episode he inspires us to eat more of what he calls the #1 longevity food. Listen to find out what that is and how to make the most of it.

Dan Buettner is an explorer, National Geographic Fellow, award-winning journalist and producer, and New York Times bestselling author who now works in partnership with municipal governments, large employers, and health insurance companies to implement Blue Zones Projects in communities, workplaces, and universities.
