  • Blue zones are places on Earth where, on average, people live longer and healthier lives.
    The four places around the world that are considered to be blue zones are Sardinia, Italy; Okinawa, Japan; Loma Linda, Calif; and Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica.
    People living in each of these places have a greater chance of reach the age of 90 than any other places on Earth. These places also have higher percentages of people who have reached age 100 than other places.
