Blue Zones longevity

 A Recent Blue Zones article on longevity suggested social contacts may be more important than diet, exercise and medication.  Isolation and loneliness may be associated with heart attacks, strokes and cancer. The problem of aging is complicated by children moving far away, friends becoming ill and dying or also moving.  Having a friendly loving long term relationship is helpful, but also can be suddenly destroyed.  

The good news is we have the capacity to make friends with many people.  One suggestion made was volunteering.   Another way to link.  Being a helper in this world is good. Most of us just need to smile. A smile is very encouraging.  Of course some areas of the world may be hard to make close associations. They say in Washington DC, if you are a politician and you want a friend, get a dog.
