Physical Health Guide
It is reported that there are isolated groups of people in
the world who live
to be 120 years old or more without ever being sick and are fully
active until death. There is some scientific
research to support these reports although ages are often disputed due
to poor records from long ago and some facts seem to have been exaggerated. Check out the Hunzas, Vilcabambas, Japanese Okinawans, and Georgian Abkhasians
for examples. It is also reported that when some isolated
groups became connected to "civilization" and adopted modern
lifestyles and diets, they
began to age more rapidly and suffer from common modern illnesses like cancer, heart disease, etc.

We need clean air to breath! If you live where air quality is not good - clean it or move!
Learn to breath right? Nuff said.
