Last spring there was an episode of 60 Minutes discussing the Leisure World Cohort. These residents of the California retirement community were thoroughly evaluated in the 1980’s on everything from their physical activity to what vitamins they took. Years later, despite their advancing ages, the population from this community has aged exceptionally well and preserved the integrity of their brains.
What did they do to live longer?
Did they discover the fountain of youth?
No, of course, they didn’t. Instead the residents of this community learned how to live well. Check out this short clip on what the residents of this community teach us about living life and aging well.
