The Blue Zones have become a major focus of research for many because of their extended life spans and low rates of heart disease, dementia, and cancer.
The world's Blue Zones are home to the highest concentrations of centenarians and have escaped many of the terrible diseases.
Dan Buettner, the guy who created the Blue Zone Project, is one of the most well-known Blue Zone researchers.
Buettner has studied Blue Zone communities to learn about the habits and behaviors that enable them to live such long lives.
With the goal of making these practices available to communities that lack longevity, such as many sections of the United States.
Buettner has been on the lookout for American towns that have already chosen their own longevity-focused lifestyles.
