>In his book, Buettner provides a list of nine lessons, covering the lifestyle of blue zones people:

We don't know which ones of those are real and which signify you live in a zone which has bad records for birth certificates.
For example, how many people over 100 are lifelong vegetarians? Vegans? I bet the number is extremely small (or zero in the case of vegans, a term coined in 1944), but that's what many people think of when one says "plant-based diet".
Well, that means lots of HFCS and starch, fried in vegetable oil, of course.
While that is true, many of those things (regular physical activity, stress reduction, engagement in family/social life, moderate alcohol intake) improve your quality of life regardless of whether it makes you live longer.
