Does eating broccoli extend life?
In 2009, journalist Dan Buettner published his book Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People who've Lived the Longest in which, based on studies carried out by scientists Pes and Poulain, he told us that the secret of a long and comfortable life is hidden in five scattered regions in the world: Okinawa, in Japan; Loma Linda, in California; Sardinia, in Italy; Ikaria, in Greece and Nicoya, in Costa Rica. For years Buettner toured the places on the planet where people live the longest, which he called "blue zones."
The common point? A stress-free life, constant moderate activity, and a diet rich in vegetables. But what vegetables are present in the diet of such different cultures? Broccoli or Brussels sprouts in California, cabbage in Costa Rica, watercress, cauliflower or red cabbage in Italy and Greece, and wasabi in Japan. Indeed, they are all brassicas.
