Michael Varbaek and Diane Haworth are longevity researchers and are currently filming a documentary on longevity. They were traveling throughout 2011, continuing in 2012 to longevity hotspots across the globe. They are filming and documenting the lifestyles and habits of the “long lived people” in the areas with the highest concentrations of centenarians and super centenarians (110 years of age and older…).
Last summer they spent time in China where they did work with the Institute for Computational Biology, Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In September and October they were filming in Ovodda, Sardinia and Campodimele, Italy. The fall took them to Prague, Czech Republic and Budapest, Hungary doing more filming and research.
They just returned from a month in Simi, Greece in May 2012, and are currently in Okinawa, Japan for the month of June 2012.
They were honored to be able to present some of their research at The World Anti Aging Congress in December. They will begin delivering some of their findings, research, videos and photos through this website… so stay tuned and join them in their journey.
