What is the Longevity series Ilinda?

https://humanlongevityfilm.com/

It started May 8 and should finish tomorrow.  They usually run these series a couple of times, but you almost have to binge-watch just to get it all.  But it's FREE.  They always offer the opportunity to buy the series, and I did with the Vaccines Revealed, as well as The Truth About Cancer series.

Glad you started this.  The series was great and am guessing they will replay it within a few months; if so, will post notice here.

For starters, after having viewed all of the episodes (9 IIRC), some of the common themes are:
1) community
2) much physical activity
3) eating "the old way"
4) helping others

A lot can be said about each of those categories.  Community for example is something that about everybody had.  I don't just mean people who live nearby.  Most of these people grew up in times without vehicles or rarely using them, and community meant that loosely knit group of people who lived nearby, or within walking distance of each other, and who interacted with the others very regularly.  It is almost impossible to replicate that now due to the internet, cars, air travel, etc., etc.  However, if the lifestyle of those in the most developed countries of the world were suddenly in upheaval, true community as it was in the past would have a chance to develop.  After the psychopaths and sociopaths were dealt with of course.

Physical activity is also extremely important.  One of the oldsters featured is now about 97 and at age 95, she was still climbing pineapple trees to fetch her fruit!  LOL  She was shown hoeing some ground in one of the clips.  What can a person say but WOW?  Also, I recall one study was quoted that said a questionnaire administered to the centenarians about exercise, and while all of them mentioned walking regularly, as in daily, none of them mentioned jogging.  That is easy to imagine, as jogging, with the purpose of squeezing exercise into a busy day, had not been needed back then.

And eating "the old way" meant eating unprocessed foods, including plenty of fruits and vegetables, and yes, breads.  However, their breads were made from some of the ancient wheats/grains that had not yet been altered by the corporados.  Plus, the ingredients were basic, such as grain, water, yeast or presumably a lot of sourdough.  No yeast needed there, and people made that at home.  No need to brominate the flour, or add toxic fats or toxic oils, no BHT needed to "preserving freshness", etc.  I recall one woman in her 90's mentioned casually that she did used to eat bread every day, "when bread was good".  She has apparently stopped eating bread now that commercially available bread has changed so much.  Plus they did not have forced vaccines as babies or children.

And helping others is self-explanatory.  Presumably, that endeavor helps the helper, because it puts the focus on someone else, rather than self.

I'll try to rack/wrack my brain for more tidbits.

Oh, here's one.  One of the few younger interviewees was a Costa Rican tour guide, who appears to be approximately in his 30's, and his life has dramatically changed, as has those of the oldsters, because of the fact that Costa Rica has been quickly developed in very recent years.  Tour guide said that even his brother, who is only six years younger has a very different attitude toward the computer world.  He indicated, without actual words, that his brother is like the teenagers and twentysomethings in more developed countries, where the computer or phone has a hold on him  (my words).  He did comment on this phenomenon a bit, somewhat in puzzlement.

Hopefully more to follow....

"Yum!" to home-made bread made the old-fashioned way!  My mother used to make her own bread, and it had so much more substance to it than store-bought.  Am guessing that eating bread the old way includes lots of grass-fed butter too?  :)

Those are all good.  In fact, it jogged my memory, as one of the intervieweess mentioned eating the Mediterranean Diet, which may include a small amount of meat, but does include wine, cheese (hopefully raw and organic), and avoiding a huge evening meal.

Reading the article...

And "what set it apart from other places in the region was its emphasis on potatoes, goat's milk, honey, legumes (especially garbanzo beans, black-eyed peas, and lentils), wild greens, some fruit and relatively small amounts of fish."
Ikaria has a few more "top longevity foods:" feta cheese, lemons and herbs like sage and marjoram that Ikarians use in their daily tea. What's missing that we usually associate with Greece? Lamb. The Ikarians do eat some goat meat, but not often.

Drink alcohol moderately and regularly, i.e. 1-2 glasses a day.

move their bodies a lot. They have social circles that reinforce healthy behaviors. They take time to de-stress. They're part of communities, often religious ones. And they're committed to their families.


What i'm hearing...:
- mead, tesguino and/or wine; all with abundant minerals and probiotics
- destress; allow (hormonal) relaxation
- get yer minerals in food [think: "let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food"
What did the world's oldest recorded man eat and drink? A lot of rice wine and herbs.
What have 'breatharians' and those practicing inedia taught us? We eat and drink too much and our eating and drinking causes more eating and drinking, as well as stress and toxiciy.

Inediates and those on the path toward 'breatharianism', however, stress that it's all about 'destressing' to get there, i.e. getting rid of toxins and dealing with trauma. After that it's all about eating (small amounts of) good [i.e. minerally dense] food.


Is inedia or 'breatharianism' feasible or desirable? From a prepper point of view, certainly. But even if eating (for instance) once a week is attainable, that's worth looking into. Though no food or water may appear unlikely, much less food and water is not only more easy to believe, but it's already a great big step in becoming less dependent on one's environment.

I have found personally that in the past, I was responding to the wrong cue by eating.  Specifically stomach acid made me think I needed to eat, and I'd always eat a big supper before bedtime in order not to be awakened by that cue.

Now I realize that I can even skip some meals entirely by simply stirring 1/2 t baking soda in half a glass of water.  Lots of benefits to baking soda alkalizing.

R.R. I think your new Topic is fine here.
It does relate mostly to lifestyle and the way the people in these areas eat.
I'd venture to say, GMO foods totallly banned in those places. :)
Thanks,
Barb T.

And even if GM foods aren't banned in the locales known for longevity, the oldsters never ate it during their youth or earlier adulthood, as it did not exist at that time.
