Cu ocazia Martisorului si a venirii primaverii va uram un sincer Live Long and Prosper. Si nu doar va uram, dar va aratam si cativa membri ai speciei care chiar au facut asta. Au trait mult. Specialistii au descoperit asa-numite Zone Albastre ale planetei, locuri in care densitatea celor care sarbatoresc 100 de ani e mai mare ca in alte locuri. Ce au in comun aceste comunitati si cum ii poate ajuta studierea lor pe ceilalti? Cat are legatura o viata lunga cu dieta si cat cu fericirea sau simtul solidaritatii?
Incepem acest martie cu optimism si voie buna. Si invataturi de la oameni care au trait un secol.
