The Seventh-day Adventist Church is an American-born religion that began in the mid-1800’s. From the outset it gave a priority to a healthy lifestyle as part of its understanding of Scriptures. Special diets, concentration on exercise and healthy living have resulted in its membership living on average 8-10 years longer than others (as noted in a CBS story on living a longer life). In fact, nearly 100,000 members of the Adventist Churches 1 million members in North America have participated in several long-term studies funded in part by the federal government - to understand the secret of the Adventist approach.
National Geographic's Dan Buettner collaborated in a study by the National Institute on Ageing and later wrote about its findings in a book that became the best-selling book The Blue Zones.
