How to Garden Your Way into Old Age

Oct 25, 2012

Given their financial mess, the Greeks are not being asked much for advice on anything and it's a pity because they have a lot to teach the world, for example, how to live to 100 while keeping your wits about you. 

This article in the New York Times focuses on one Greek island called Ikaria where residents routinely live past 90 and seeks to understand why. It all seems to come down to lifestyle: good food, physical activity, and social interaction. 

I think it's worth noting that the word "garden" appears 11 times in the article!

Yes! Of course,these people do not really represent the mentality which has greedily grabbed the trojan horse without asking any questions,back then; nor the mentality of those who gifted it.
Nice note on counting the *gardens* Roger! I think you could make hay with a *word cloud* on this article!
So much to learn from others. Thanks for the article.
