The island of Sardinia in Italy is considered one of the five villages with the most elderly people in the world, with a life expectancy of 90 or more.

According to researchers on aging, in addition to Sardinia, four villages in the world with many long-lived people are Okinawa (Japan), Nicoya (Costa Rica), Icaria (Greece) and the Seventh-day Adventist community in Loma. Linda, Calif.

Paglieno said that at lunchtime every day, she usually drinks a little red wine. This is a food known to be rich in polyphenols, which have many health benefits. In addition, she absolutely never smoked.

At his age, Paglieno is still in good health and always happy. She believes that if you want to have a long life, you should live far away from the old land, avoid participating in hard work, should change the living environment, move to the mountains, cool and pure climate. , will be good for health and prolong life.

According to centenarian researchers in the mountains of Sardinia, another reason for this village’s longevity is genetics. The rankings for neighboring villages, such as Seulo, have had 20 centenarians over the past two decades, of which 11 are male.

Caterina Moi, 97 years old, in this village married the last centenary of the village named Salvato Angelo. He passed away last August. Her cousin just turned 103. To this day, Caterina can still hear every sound on the stairs every day and can recount every moment of her life.

The reason I live so long is because when I was young, I always worked,” she said. “My husband is also a hard worker, the couple does manual labor every day to earn a living, mainly growing fruit trees. I eat those foods, they are very healthy and safe, that makes our health more durable and resilient.”

In addition, the inhabitants of this village often walk steadily on hillsides and uneven roads. All around them, black and white portraits of centenarians from 1996 adorn 20 houses. On his or her 100th birthday, each person is celebrated and honored.

The centenarians in the villages of Seulo and Esterzili have mostly lived and worked with their families on the mainland for generations. The researchers suggest that a scientific daily food and diet is a way to reduce the risk of chronic diseases and increase the chances of living longer.
