January 9, 2014

Story at-a-glance

  • Centenarians are the fastest growing segment of the US population, with numbers doubling every decade; by the year 2050, the number of people who will have reached the century mark is expected to pass one million
  • Research shows centenarians have 60 percent lower rates of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure, yet scientific explanations for their health and longevity remain elusive
  • Centenarians as a group are happy and optimistic and have extremely low rates of depression and other psychiatric problems, suggesting that personality traits may be one of the most significant factors in longevity
  • Hundreds of centenarians have been interviewed about what they believe explains their long life, and 10 key themes have been identified
  • If you want to live to be 100, there are four key nutrients important for overall brain health, helping prevent dementia and cognitive decline: vitamin D, DHA, folate, and magnesium
