Researchers from the Massachusetts General Brigham Healthcare System found that providing plant-based foods could be a useful strategy to prevent childhood obesity in kids from food insecure families and then set them up for better health when they become adults. And it's really important because right now, 41.9% of Americans are obese 41% so we really need to do something if we're going to change this.

Today we're going to explore how most people hope that they'll live a long, healthy and happy life, but still are able to travel the world and attempt to reverse engineer the formula for longevity. That's exactly what Dan Buettner did, beginning in the early 1980s. He collaborated with National Geographic and scoured the globe in pursuit of places where people live much longer than average and created the concept of blue zones. And there's an impact on cell phone usage as well. Sally, as you said, you're a fan of blue zones.
