At-Sunrice Culinary Academy welcome you to the 2018 Wellbeing Conference, focused around the topic EAT WISE, LIVE WELL, and “SARDINIAN LONGEVITY DNA AND ASSETS”. In 1997, the Akea project started to study longevity in Sardinia and in the early 2000s, physician Giovanni Pes and demographer Michael Poulain found remarkably low mortality rate and high life expectancy among several villages in central Sardinia. They marked each settlement onto a map, eventually creating a cluster of blue marks.
They labeled the region a blue zone, a term now used to refer to any area with centenarians (100 years or older). Five have been identified, including Nicoya, Costa Rica, and Ikaria, Greece.
