Life Expectancy?

In the November Issue of National Geographic there was a document about three societies that seemed to live longer lives than their counterparts.

The first listed were the Sardinians who live in Italy, the second were some Seventh Day Adventists living in California, and the third group were the Okinawans from Japan. The article examines what are factors that attribute to the longer life expectancy of each group. What is interesting are not necessarily their diffences but their similarities.

All groups; "Don't Smoke, put family first, [are] active every day, keep socially engaged, eat fruits, vegetables, and whole grains." (page nine) Out of that list I would like to focus on the socially engaged aspect.

For all of AdultFriendFinder's faults, especially in Blogland, a major bonus is that this social network does occur as a result of the site. A major example is the recent Blogger's convention in Illionis. But from what I hear, it is not unccommon for people from the blog community to talk amongst themselves via other chat rooms, telephone calls and emails.

Which causes laughter, encouragement, a support group that uplifs and gives that sense of identity-ultimately a social sphere. I must admit I really enjoy this community, and see its addition, to me playing blasketball and football as liesure activities with other social activities that I do, beneficial to my quality of life.

With this realizition, I would like to bet that bloggers live a longer life than none bloggers.

Ok, so if blogging and community makes us live longer does it promote any other miracles? Non aging, anti wrinkle maybe?? Just dreaming.
