In the beginning of this book Mr. Robbins discusses the dietary and social habits of some of the longest lived societies in the world. These socities inlcude the VealCobbins, Hunzans, Abkazians, and Okinawans. Next Mr. Robbins discusses why these societies have elders who are not only long in age but long health. It all boils down to diet (lots of fruits and vegetables) and most importantly social connections (the need to belong and sense of purpose). This book has changed the way I eat and made me realize that I am not island and my connections to friends and family have more impact on my health than i could ever imagine!
