What Does it Take to Live a Long Life? Community!!


In this TED Talk, Susan Pinker, longevity researcher, talks about the Italian island of Sardinia, which has more than six times as many centenarians as the mainland and ten times as many as North America. Why is this? According to Susan Pinker, it’s not a sunny disposition or a low-fat, gluten-free diet that keeps the islanders alive so long — it’s their emphasis on close personal relationships and face-to-face interactions. Learn more about super longevity as Pinker explains what it takes to live to 100 and beyond.
