Ikarians eat a variation of the Mediterranean diet (lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fish), which adds about six years of life expectancy.
“We found on the Greek island of Ikaria that people are three times more likely to reach age 90 than in the U.S. They will also have about 20% less cancer, half the rate of cardiovascular disease, and almost no dementia.”
With the right lifestyle, experts say, chances are that you may live up to a decade longer. What’s the prescription for success?
