Blue Zones and CellPhone Usage #FoodNotPhones

The Lempert Report
September 11, 2023

We've all heard about the Blue Zones - those areas where people live to 100! Today we explore how most people hope they'll live a long, healthy, and happy life, but few are able to travel the world in an attempt to reverse-engineer the formula for longevity. That's exactly what Dan Buettner did: Beginning in the early 1980s, Buettner collaborated with National Geographic, scouring the globe in pursuit of places where people live much longer than average and thus, the concept of ‘Blue Zones’ came to be. And there is an impact on cell phone usage.

Just a reminder, you can join in on our newest initiative Food Not Phones where we all commit to putting down our phones during mealtimes on September 19th. Join us along with industry's leaders: the FMI Foundation's Family Meals Movement, Acosta Group, Hy-Vee, Fresh Direct, That's It, Shuttlerock, and The Association of Retail & Consumer Professionals.
