Dan Buettner's National Geographic cover story on longevity, "The Secrets of Living Longer", was one of the top-selling issues in history and made him a finalist for the National Magazine Award. In his book, The Blue Zones, he reveals strategies for longevity found in Blue Zones: places in the world where higher percentages of people enjoy remarkably long, full lives. In his book he discloses the recipe, blending this unique lifestyle formula with the latest scientific findings to inspire easy, lasting change that may add years to your life.
In 2009, Buettner and partner AARP applied principles of The Blue Zones to Albert Lea, Minnesota and successfully raised the life expectancy and lowered health care costs by 40%. He is currently working with Healthways to implement the program in the Beach Cities of Los Angeles.
