Longevity: Journey into the blue zone | TechKnow


In this episode of TechKnow, we explore the regions where people enjoy a longer life of good health, regions known as Blue zones.

Acciaroli is one such region. It is part of what is known as the Cilento Coast of Italy, situated 140 km south of Naples. It has a high concentration of centenarians living there.

According to researchers from Rome’s Sapienza University and the University of California, San Diego, one in every 60 of its residents is at least 90 years old.

This Mediterranean region has become known for good health supplemented by diet rich in fresh produce, pasta, olive oil, and rosemary.

    My grandma said: "It's better to eat too little than to much."

  6. Antonio C. says

    In another video, they say 1 in 10 residents are over 90 years old

  7. Atticus Kilby says

    How about taking into account their overall quality of life? Are they stressed? The other thing to consider is strong community which provides a safety net, so to speak, they are not alienated like a large number of elderly individuals are in other countries. Also check the chemistry of the soil, this may give a clue- micronutrients.

    Look how much pasta they eat versus Americans.

    Seit über 50 Jahren wird die die Insel von Militärs und Waffenherstellern benutzt um:

    neue Geschosse, Bomben und Drohnen zu testen,
    Soldaten und Piloten zu trainieren,
    Kriegsszenarien durchzuspielen,
    alte Waffen, Munition und gefährliche Chemikalien zu verbrennen, zu sprengen oder zu vergraben
    Bombereinsätze zu starten.

    60% aller italienischen Militärbasen befinden sich hier; die Basen des italienischen Militärs, der NATO und der Amerikaner beanspruchen ein Drittel der Land- und Seegebiete der Insel. Während militärischer Übungen auf See werden die gesperrten Seegebiete auf knapp 19.000 Quadratkilometer erweitert.

    Die Test- und Schießplätze in Quirra, Teulada und Capo Frasca

    Innerhalb der Schießbereiche sind die Verseuchungen, die Krebsfälle und Geburtsfehler am höchsten. In diesen großen Gebieten im südlichen Sardinien werden von den Waffenherstellern und den Militärs folgende Aktionen ausgeführt:

  11. Fran Sinclair says

    they have a good sense of community and the lifestyle there seems very laid back which reduces stress. All the 5 bluezones have something in common is staying active, eating vegetarian or nearly close to vegetarian and keeping active outside

  12. Ik1Wetniet says

    so eating raw meat and raw A2 butter and fresh fruit and veggies is not the key for longivity?

  13. Ik1Wetniet says

    I always wonder, how they earn their money to buy such food?

  14. Crunchy Potato_7487 says

    ORMUS WATER! (Youll need to purchase a water filter machine, but hey its worth it) A TABLESPOON OF TURMERIC A DAY! (i know it may taste quite gross, but you want to live to 120 right?) MORINGA LEAFS! (This is the healthiest plant in the world with 98 nutrients and antioxidants in total, the next most healthiest plant in the world only has 28 nutrients) good thing i have 30 trees of moringa/malunggay in my garden😅

  15. The only Woolf says

    What if someone doesn’t smoke or drink and eats healthy food here would they live for like 140 years

  16. The only Woolf says

    I’m from tatter tot accademy

  18. Shocking Music says

    This is the beautiful side of life…

  19. Abel Soo says

    One's occupation can also have an effect on longevity. Anyone agree?

  20. Nicki says

    people don't rot away like they do in some places where you see the elderly locked up in nursing homes bored to death

  21. Diane Veilleux says

    Do these people eat a lot of dairy?

  22. peace isbest says

    im a little confused. are the researchers saying that the younger generation in THIS community is more stressed? If so, maybe it's not the environment at all that contributes to this longevity but rather, the older generations' values…

  23. Raw Bacon says

    Yet their life expectancy is virtually the same as Canada, having a few Centenarians seems meaningless………Basically a few outliers live to a long age which could easily be explained by the warmer climate alone.

  24. RubberWilbur says

    one word: olive oil

    I was a guest of an Italian colleague in his family home in Northern Italy, where the air is fresh, the water is fresh, everything is fresh! I sat on a sofa with his aged mother and was gobsmacked when she suddenly jumped over the back of the sofa and went off to the kitchen! Must be something in the natural lifestyle!

  27. Jedi Lady says

    In Asia we believe that if you have Buddha's ears, you live longer. That means you have that long ear with big lobes. I hope people will study that and look at the percentage. They also need to look at the blood type of these people!

  28. Stay Focus says

    What if your 100years old?

  32. Ju Elikkaes says

    Don't be fooled, they eat plenty of animal foods too (along the lines of fish, meat, butter, lard, milk etc..) as is the case with all the other blue zones.

  33. Emma Philomena says

    This doctor/presenter is absolutely gorgeous

  34. apple snow says

    funny thing is , all of those blue zones are next to a coast, which obviously shows that fish is important factor

  36. Maria says

    And….this is my family ♥️♥️♥️
    My grandparents came from here, Centola, the town over, over 100 years ago to NJ, USA.
    All of the Vassallo’s lived well into their 90’s, my Unlce to 101.

    Genetics. My friends.

    Love, Maria Vassallo

    Breakfast at 12 AM and dinner at 5 PM… that's a 18-19 hours of no eating…. that's the key for longevity: leave a gap of at least 12 hours between feeding periods. Studies on rats showed impressive results on longevity and health resistance. Humans seem to follow the same rule.
