This Month's Highlight:

This Month's Highlighted Book at the MCMC Planetree Health Resource Library The Blue Zones Solution: Eating and Living Like the World's Healthiest People
By Dan Buettner

"Bestselling author Buettner is back with a well-organized game plan for a long and well-lived life...This is a thoughtfully presented and well-written guide from which anyone-no matter where he or she is in the journey to better health-can benefit." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An ideal way to learn how to live longer and better is to study people who are doing just that. [Buettner] distills the deepest insights from the Blue Zones to light our path." --Mehmet Oz, M.D.

"Buettner's initiative has the potential to dramatically change the way we think about health in America." --Walter Willett, M.D., chairman of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health

"Propogating the Blue Zones would not only prevent a rise in the prevalence of diabetes (and other such misfortunes); it would allow us to eliminate more than 80 percent of the burden we have now. That's revolutionary." --David Katz, M.D., director of the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center
