Makeover volunteers will highlight Blue Zones Project’s potential impact

I had a blog post sometime ago -- May 7, 2012 to be exact -- where I attached a short clip video of an interview with Dan Buettner. He is an internationally recognized researcher and explorer who also is the author of the New York Times best-seller, The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who've Lived the Longest.
The following article is about several volunteers from Mason City, Iowa who very recently volunteered for a project called, "The Blue Zones project". 
"The Blue Zones project is designed to change the environment to make it easier to make healthy choices rather than relying on individual responsibility", Buettner said.
Buettner asked the participants to make a one-year commitment to the Blue Zones principles, which are based on lifestyles of five societies throughout the world — areas designated as Blue Zones — where people live the longest and healthiest.
“What these Blue Zones do is give us some clear lessons on how we can reprioritize our lives,” he said.
Very interested to see how the next year goes for these brave volunteers....
