“80% of how long we live is determined by lifestyle factors and our habits. Only 20% is genetics or health care.”
Nick Buettner of Blue Zones talks about how the built environment can affect longevity. He has travelled the world in search of the communities where people live longest and shares stories about places where people live longer, healthier, happier lives. He talks about ways to make our built environment more liveable and how to create healthier places for residents. According to Nick, when the healthy choice is the easy choice, favourable conditions for longevity are created.
